WHAT IS IT?
So far, it seems like a global viral panic type story, with potentially powered individuals at the center of it.
Think The Gifted or The Handmaid's Tale meets Contagion meets reality, and that's why it's so scary.
WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
Everyone is infected by the Strix virus, but it’s harmless in 99% of people. However, for that 1%, it can have dangerous effects. Some people can control them, almost as if they're superpowers.
But this isn't a comic about superheroes (not yet, anyway). It's a book about panic and politics.
And as that panic rises and this minority group is leveraged against by the powers that be, logic gets left behind.
