UPDATE: We have the full details on this remarkable new publication.

Today, it is announced that Catalyst Prime, this exciting new superhero universe will premiere at Free Comic Book Day, in a one-shot special written by Christopher J. Priest (Deathstroke, Black Panther) and Joseph Phillip Illidge (Solarman), with art by Marco Turini (Legends of the Dark Knight, Secret Wars: Battleworld) and Jessica Kholinne (Secret Wars: Star-Lord & Kitty Pryde)!

A mission to save the world from a rapidly approaching asteroid changes the lives of five astronauts forever, and begins the rise of superhuman beings on Earth. The surprise ending will lay the groundwork for the entire Catalyst Prime line of comics in 2017 and beyond!

“Catalyst Prime is the superhero line the comic book industry needs” says writer/editor Joseph Phillip Illidge. “An inclusive universe of character-driven, heroic adventure stories by a diverse group of creators, with the opportunity to start at the ground floor and experience each title as the entry to a new world.”

The line-up of superhero titles, spearheaded by the Writers Room of Christopher Priest, Joe Casey, Amy Chu, David F. Walker, Brandon Thomas, Alex deCampi, Sheena C. Howard, and Ramon Govea, along with other star-studded top-tier creators, starts here!
