California rejects President Donald Trump and breaks off from the U.S. in a new comic released this week.

Calexit, created by writer Matteo Pizzolo and artist Amancay Nahuelpan, depicts a dystopian world where "militants clad in black bloc openly clash with federal troops to defend immigrants, painkiller addiction is widespread, and environmental decay is clear," writes Entertainment Weekly.

The issues are relevant to the Trump administration and states like California that have stood up to the president's hardline policies on immigration and climate change.

"This comes as a surprise to a lot of people, but the project wasn't conceived under the Trump Administration," Pizzolo told EW. "We were initially putting this all together last year. You're right though, it's become very much a product of the Trump era and we've embraced that.”

Inspiration for the comic came from the drought in California, said Pizzolo.

"The thought of having to rely on the federal government for something like water was scary a year ago," he said. "In 2017, it's downright terrifying. But it can also be inspiring to recognize our interdependence and get past political vitriol to work together."
