Discover a Brand New Series About Life After Humans in November 2020
LOS ANGELES, CA (October 6, 2020) – BOOM! Studios revealed a first look at the premiere issue of the science fiction comic book series, ORIGINS. The limited series by creators Arash Amel (A Private War), Joseph Oxford (Me + Her), and Lee Toland Krieger (The Age of Adaline), with acclaimed writer Clay McLeod Chapman (Absolute Carnage: Separation Anxiety), illustrator Jakub Rebelka (Judas), colorist Patricio Delpeche (Strange Skies Over East Berlin), and letterer Jim Campbell (Alienated) and producer Brian Kavanaugh-Jones (Midnight Special, Outside the Wire), presents a stunning view of a future where humanity’s last hope may be the person who brought about its destruction, available in November 2020.
One thousand years after humans have gone extinct and artificial intelligence has taken over the world, a single man is brought back to life—David Adams, the genius whose technology was responsible for the destruction of his species, and who has been given a second chance at life in order to save mankind and undo his biggest mistake.
But even with the help of Chloe, his first creation and the android that revived him, he may not be enough to reignite the spark of humanity or stop the AI overlords who plan to eliminate the last hope for mankind. David and Chloe must embark on the greatest journey of their lives, as he seeks to find redemption and discover if humanity can—or should—have any kind of future.
