IXTH GENERATION EXPANDS TOP COW UNIVERSE
The Top Cow Universe has a decade long history of some great comics including Witchblade, The Darkness, and more recently Artifacts. It's set to expand in January with the launch of IXth Generation from writer Matt Hawkins and artist Stjepan Sejic.
IXth Generation is set in the future, on a world in which natural death is no more. No need goes unfulfilled and everything you could ever want is yours...as long as you've been chosen to live in this new Utopia. Oh, and you need to be willing to subjugate yourself to these new self-proclaimed gods with "IX" emblazoned upon them. No biggie, right?
This Utopia is built on genocide, but it's still a paradise. Do the ends justify the means? Aphrodite, Velocity, Hades, and the other Nines establish fiefdoms in this new world an attempt to rule. While their internal clashes have escalated, they are forced to put these aside as a common enemy approaches in the form of the hordes of The Darkness. The sins of the past have come to claim the God pretenders.
The cybernetic future established in Aphrodite IX and Cyber Force comes face-to-face with the supernatural side of the Top Cow Universe from the likes of Artifacts. Best of both worlds, really.
I have fallen behind on my Top Cow reading and for that I am sorry because this sounds pretty damn cool. Looks like I've got some catching up to do before the first issue of IXth Generation is released on January 7th, 2015.
