On a planet ruined by corporate warfare and environmental havoc, only those with a spark of ingenuity and the courage to light the fuse have any hope of prosperity. The planetary quarantine surrounding the once-idyllic planet Illal has forced the inhabitants to forge their own future with what little resources they have left in the wake of the Giga-Structure, the growing viral mass that engulfs nearly a third of the surface. With no help from the United Terran Authority, the two largest multi-planetary corporations left on the planet, SENTIUM and PROSK, define and enforce their own laws as they fight for dominance over the next fountain of riches. Neither of them could possibly suspect that the mother lode will be discovered in the most unlikeliest of places.
In this fourth and final preview release, exclusive to ComiXology, writer Jeremy Barlow and artists Nathan Fox (DMZ, Fluorescent Black) and Logan Faerber (Dobot) bring you "THE COST OF DOING BUSINESS," a cautionary tale of overzealous wartime commerce, lettered by Deron Bennett (Tale of Sand, The Dark Crystal).
