AfterShock Announces Relay by Zac Thompson, Donny Cates, and Andy Clarke

AfterShock has announced a brand new series on sale July 2018, Relay. With a story by Zac Thompson and Donny Cates, written by Thomspon, and art by Andy Clarke, the series is a “tribute to the science fiction worlds.”

A perfect future of intergalactic travel and community. Every newly discovered planet is unified culturally through a monolithic structure known as the Galactic Relay. Although the towering monument is meant to inspire conformity of ideas, technology, and progress – many resent the foreign structure. Jad Carter, a Relay employee, must keep the peace and act as an emissary to new civilizations. But when he finds the Relay’s mythological creator, Hank Donaldson, his idea of reality and the universe shatters.

Equal parts The Fifth Element and Philip K Dick, Relay is an exploration of monoculture, identity, and the deceptive nature of legend set in a thriving future where humanity forcibly assimilates new worlds.
