Alpha Gods: Omnibus – OUT NOW!

covers_new.inddIn the year 2086 humanity faces a new threat, Extra Humans. The government is struggling to cope with the growing number of mutants, aliens and supernatural beings who are living amongst us. People are beginning to panic and so, in 2050, the Department for Extra Human Affairs was established with a remit to try and contain the problem. By 2086 the situation has escalated, so they have formed a new rapid response strike force, the Alpha Gods. Who better to police the Extra Human community than Extra Humans themselves?

This group of young misfits and rebels must learn to work together despite facing conflict from within and from without. How can they follow a leader they have no faith in? How can they fight people they used to count as allies?

Their first mission sees them taking on an ancient evil, Malak. He is a Nephilim, an ancient race that was spawned when fallen angels mated with human women. He’s seeking a way to bring his “fathers” through to our world, and only the Alpha Gods stand in his way.

Written by Ian Sharman with art by Ezequiel Pineda and JJ Alonso and coloured by Mauro Barbosa, Yel Zamor, Leigh Wortley and Patrik Mock, this special Omnibus edition collects Alpha Gods: Emergence, Alpha Gods: Betrayal and Alpha Gods: Revelation, the complete first Alpha Gods story arc. Also included are seventy five pages of extras featuring rare and never before seen production artwork produced during the development of the series.

covers_new.inddReturning once more to a world where being a super hero is just another nine to five job!

When Frostica flies into a jealous rage after Flame-O and Pink Girl are caught kissing on live TV, the government gives in to pressure from religious fundamentalists to ban super hero agencies.

Nobody is safe in this mad rampage, not the Houses of Parliament and not even the Queen herself!
