Described as being an epic that combines big science fiction ideas with galactic heroes facing mid-life crisis, EGOs is a new Image Comics series written by Stuart Moore (Wolverine Noir) and illustrated by Gus Storms (12 Reasons to Die).
Years ago, The Earth/Galactic Operatives defeated Masse, a sentient, hungry galaxy—but now Masse has returned, consuming entire planets and killing millions of people. Deuce, an aging hero, decides to reform his old team and go into battle to save the day. But in order to do that, he must cross a line with Pixel, his wife and former teammate, an act that threatens to tear apart the life they've built together.
"There are obviously echoes of other space-based super-teams here, but with darker, HBO-style characterization, and a twist at the end of issue #1 that hopefully comes as a surprise AND sets everything else in motion," stated Moore. "I'm really proud of it—I think it's the best thing I've ever done."
A preview of EGOs #1 will be featured in SAGA #15 which arrives on October 30, 2013 and can be pre-ordered from the November issue of Previews; the twisted futuristic tale will be in stores on January 15, 2014.
