Top Cow launches all-new mythological thriller in GOD COMPLEX

Writers Paul Jenkins (Inhumans, Wolverine: Origin) and Bryan Lie team up with artist Hendry Prasetya (Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers) for an all-new mystery thriller in GOD COMPLEX, an ongoing series launching from Image/Top Cow this October.

GOD COMPLEX is set in the futuristic city of Delphi where a young digital-forensics investigator named Seneca finds himself embroiled in the bizarre murders of three church acolytes. Guided by his cryptic mentor, the Ruler named Hermes, Seneca uncovers a stunning conspiracy and a mystery that will turn his entire world upside down.

Join the GOD COMPLEX team on a unique vision of a digital future powered by mythological gods. GOD COMPLEX is the first original toy line-up from Jakarta-based GLITCH. It features sci-fi and high-fashion reimaginings of mythological gods from various beliefs/regions like Greek, Egypt, China, and Japan. The toys first released in 2012 and are available for purchase at http://www.glitch-store.com. GOD COMPLEX is created by Bryan Lie, who is GLITCH co-Founder and CEO.

The company has released more than ten characters within five years, and they have been a mainstay hit in the high-end collectibles community, mainly in Japan, Hong Kong and Southeast Asia. GLITCH is bringing the IP to worldwide attention, collaborating with Top Cow Productions to publish the comics to tell the rich stories behind characters and the GOD COMPLEX universe. The first comic is GOD COMPLEX: DOGMA and questions the nature of gods, religion, truth, and human faith, set in age of misinformation and post-truth.

GOD COMPLEX #1 (Diamond Code AUG170549) will hit stores on Wednesday, October 11th. The final order cutoff for comics retailers is Monday, September 18th.

    This book sounds intriguing. But the prices for the action figures are way over my budget lol.

    I got the ashcan from sdcc this year and it was quite good. I recommend it and everyone should try it.

    I can’t recall a Top Cow book I kept reading for the long haul. Always seems they start strong but then I lose interest. But I’ll likely give this one a chance.

      I liked Postal fro the longest time.

      I guess today is my ‘I agree with with Poyo’ day. There’s something off with Top Cow’s approach storytelling that I can’t quite put my finger on. There’s no …warmth?

      • agentpoyo says:

        Yeah, Postal was the longest running book I read from Top Cow and even it started losing focus it seemed. Just came off as messy, didn’t flow very well. It just seems like they come up with a great story but they can only get the beginning of the story, they never went beyond on how to complete and finish the story.
