A perfect future of intergalactic travel and community. Every newly discovered planet is unified culturally through a monolithic structure known as the Galactic Relay. Although the towering monument is meant to inspire conformity of ideas- technology- and progress - many resent the foreign structure. Jad Carter- a Relay employee- must keep the peace and act as an emissary to new civilizations. But when he finds the Relay's mythological creator- Hank Donaldson- his idea of reality and the universe shatters. Equal parts The Fifth Element and Philip K Dick- and directly springboarding off the previously released Free Comic Book Day RELAY #0- this series is an exploration of monoculture- identity- and the deceptive nature of legend set in a thriving future where humanity forcibly assimilates new worlds. Written by Zac Thomspon (Cable- The Dregs- HER INFERNAL DESCENT)- with art by Andy Clarke (REPLICA- Batman)- and a story conceived by Zac Thompson- Eric Bromberg (PESTILENCE) and Donny Cates (BABYTEETH- Dr. Strange- Thanos- Venom- God Country)- this powerhouse of a series that HAD to be told at AfterShock!
