Goddess Mode, launching from DC/Vertigo tomorrow. A future sci-fi world in which technology controls everything and access to that technology is controlled. Aside from those who sidestep the system, get caught, get swallowed back up by the system and get used for the system’s own purposes.

Out in December…
