EARTH 2717: THE 3RD GOLDEN AGE

Building a better tomorrow today...

The planet we call home slowly dies beneath us.

Most humans now live in teeming surface "Terrarium Cities," off world colonies or orbiting space stations. All of earth's resources have been depleted.

All corporations, nations and technologies have merged into THE CONGLOMERATE, whose Enforcer Battalions now conquer whole planets to feed its shareholders' insatiable appetites.

THE CONGLOMERATE, which began with the spirit of the best mankind had to offer, saved humanity from itself by taking us to the stars and has become the most ruthless profit machine to ever exist.

Never use a robot when a human will do...

Dishonorably discharged from the Conglomerate's elite Enforcer Corps, Jon is doing a job too lowly for a robot. He leaps at the chance to go on a peaceful, first contact mission to an untainted world. Playing armed babysitter to Samantha, the daughter of a powerful Conglomerate executive, shouldn't be too hard.

What could go wrong?

Everything...

For Jon, it's a relief to get away - on an easy assignment protecting a couple of do-gooders visiting a peaceful new planet. For Samantha, it's a mission to change the world. For Jasson, it's a chance to put his theories to the test.

Being marooned on Anomaly where technology doesn't work, the terrain is lethal and the creatures even more so, Jon quickly learns he's not the man he once was. Dark secrets surround the various species that call this world home. Jon's actions here have the potential to ripple across the void of space, and touch everything in it... Maybe even the Conglomerate...

But when Anomaly sprouts synthetics-eating viruses, flesh-eating mutants and deadly magic, it becomes a race against which form of death will come first. Who will survive? Who will return?

Join us on an adventure that reclaims our humanity and saves a world!
Bonus: includes Anomaly UAR that integrates the print and virtual experience like never before.

Review quote

""Anomaly is one of the most innovative and rousing epic adventures l've seen. This story of a team of explorers marooned on a distant planet marries action and ideas in spectacular fashion, and holds important lessons for our society today." "-- "Harrison Ford"

""They have uncovered a shrewd world in ANOMALY, one where simply fighting for survival is not enough. Loaded with offbeat characters and idiosyncratic socio-structures, ANOMALY does a smashing job of bringing us back to the fundamentals of humanity." -- Ridley Scott"

""The reason this book is important is because we in the comic book industry have misleadingly used the words graphic novel' as a throw away term. We apply it to almost anything that reprints old editions of previously printed materials. What no one has done is to ACTUALLY do a fully rendered graphic novel of this scale from the very onset. This book represents what I always thought l should be holding in my hands: a meaty, sophisticated book filled with epic story and art that reads like a movie."" -- "Todd McFarlane"

""ANOMALY is Epic in terms of its scope and breadth and story. lt's also Epic in terms of sheer size and volume. This is one huge beast. lt demands respect and awe and involvement from the Reader. lt's difficult to adequately describe, praise, or assess ANOMALY by the usual terms, all of which is actually a very good thing: it means you're beholding something altogether NEW. lt will seriously kick the next generation of entertainment media into high gear, and deliver to all the prognosticators, speculators and skeptics an effective kick to their collective asses as well."" -- "Bill Sienkiewicz"
