In 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 confliict 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 coloured by Mauro Barbosa, Yel Zamor and Leigh Wortley, this series is action packed. However, the focus is not on the action itself, but on the characters and how they react to the situations they find themselves in. One of the overarching themes of the first story arc is betrayal, and how this affects the leader of the group, Paladin.
Alpha Gods is brought to you by the talented people at Orang Utan Comics.
