“Written by JOHN MCLEAN-FOREMAN Art by BRENT WHITE FC 32 pgs. $2.95 Monthly ongoing series On sale 24 MARCH, 2004 THE CONCEPT: As humanity spirals towards global war, Alex Grant and a handful of other imperfectly mutated psychics must battle against the true instigator: an AI that is viciously conquering the human race, one mind at a time. THIS ISSUE: “Eternity’s Past,” Part One—Alex Grant thought that surrendering his freedom to a covert genetics facility would take him away from his problems, but when the facility is invaded by an unknown military force and his only ally lies dying in his arms, Alex must find a way to save them both.”
Interesting artwork, looks like it was done very well on on a computer, but I’m not sure. This story really is getting of the ground drawing you in, I will have to get the next issue to see how it goes.
