A drawn, inked and colored page from Issue 1 - Latch, Fiorentino and Cassata, Wands

A full-color, complete action-packed first issue, coming in at 26 pages of exceptional art and sharp story telling.

Fully, inked and colored comic book pages are quite expensive ($150-$200 each) to create. With me financing the first five pages, the cover and logo, I am in desperate need of outside investors in order to complete this project. I've put as much of my own money as possible at this point and hope that Omega can interest enough people to bring him into reality.

Read on for the story:

A UFO did, in fact, crash land in the New Mexico desert in the summer of 1947. Quickly intercepted by the US military, the unidentified flying object and its occupants, several humanoid extraterrestrials either already dead or in the final throes of death, were whisked away to secret installations.


In 1985, after almost forty years of research, finally, a successful splice of alien and human DNA is achieved. 


Raised as a lab experiment that the military hoped to be a “super-soldier,” Omega, trained in combat, educated strenuously, and becomes the main component in General “Anvil” Hendricks elite military unit assigned to Phantom Base in Adaven, New Mexico. General Hendricks, a three-star general, believes the Omega Project will be the key to his elusive fourth star.


After a perilous first mission that results in the daring rescue of the First Lady of the United States, but in which all but the commanding officer and Omega are decimated, the program is suspended, the plug pulled.


Omega must escape from the secret base and brave his way through the isolated desert with specially trained soldiers in deadly pursuit. With the full focus of one of the most determined men in the US military, it will be an impossible task, one that may just prove fatal for a mere human, but Omega is something quite different.

While Omega is pursued, the Earth falls prey to a new type of predator, one that has no qualms about total destruction of everything we hold dear. Will Omega, half-alien, half-human be our one hope?
