Exclusive Preview: Space Cities and Dead Gods in HaloGen #1 by Tierney, Chan and Milonogiannis
Frequent collaborators Josh Tierney, Afu Chan, and Giannis Milonogiannis have teamed up again to create HaloGen, an exciting new space adventure featuring a tough female lead investigating the death of a god. The three have collaborated in the past on the critically acclaimed Spera series of graphic novels which, like HaloGen, were published by Archaia. ComicsAlliance has an exclusive preview of issue #1, out March 4th.
HaloGen features a heroine named Rell who is chasing a rumor about the body of a dead god floating in space. The world around Rell seems to be a mix of future science and superstition, as even in future space cities, people will kill for religion. Her job is to figure out where the god is and retrieve it, but that's not a simple task, and Rell is not a simple character. Check out the preview below!

WHY WE LOVE IT: We’ve published four books thus far in Josh Tierney’s Spera series because we simply love his characters and storytelling. Now, he teams up with fellow webcomic creators Afu Chan (Spera) and Giannis Milonogiannis (Old City Blues, Prophet) for a new creator-owned, sci-fi adventure.
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Having first collaborated on the Eisner Award-nominated Spera series, the creative team behind HaloGen is no stranger to kick-butt ladies, epic world-building, and sweeping adventures. This time they’re strapping on their sci-fi boots for a series perfect for fans of Prophet, Rocket Girl, and The Fifth Element.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: There’s a rumor on Cityship Q that the gigantic body of a dead god was found floating in space. Rell, an agent woking for the HaloGen organization, is tasked with finding the location of the god and retrieving it by any means necessary. Using her ability to form hyper-realistic holograms, Rell is about to take on the first mission she might not be able to finish.
