Magnus #1

Writer: Kyle Higgins, Chuck Wendig
Art: Jorge Fornes, lvaro Sarraseca
Genre: Action/Adventure

Do humans dream of owning electric sheep? Artificial intelligences, rather than becoming our overlords, have settled into an uneasy symbiosis with humanity – they work for us as our colleagues and servants, earning vacation time they spend in a boundless digital universe running on human-maintained server farms.

But not all AIs are cool with the deal. Enter Magnus – a human psychologist tasked with navigating both worlds in order to bring recalcitrant AIs back into productive society…

BONUS TUROK STORY! The all-new saga of the all-new Turok continues: He’s a man on a mission, possessed, and he won’t let anyone or anything get in his way!

Artist: Massimiliano Veltri
Colours: Fran Gamboa with JC Ruiz
