EARTH 2717: THE 3RD GOLDEN AGE

Building a better tomorrow today…

The planet we call home slowly dies beneath us.

Most humans now live in teeming surface “Terrarium Cities,” off world colonies or orbiting space stations. All of earth’s resources have been depleted.

All corporations, nations and technologies have merged into THE CONGLOMERATE, whose Enforcer Battalions now conquer whole planets to feed its shareholders’ insatiable appetites.

THE CONGLOMERATE,  which began with the spirit of the best mankind had to offer, saved humanity from itself by taking us to the stars and has become the most ruthless profit machine to ever exist.

Never use a robot when a human will do…

Dishonorably discharged from the Conglomerate’s elite Enforcer Corps, Jon is doing a job too lowly for a robot. He leaps at the chance to go on a peaceful, first contact mission to an untainted world. Playing armed babysitter to Samantha, the daughter of a powerful Conglomerate executive, shouldn’t be too hard.

What could go wrong?

Everything…

For Jon, it’s a relief to get away – on an easy assignment protecting a couple of do-gooders visiting a peaceful new planet. For Samantha, it’s a mission to change the world. For Jasson, it’s a chance to put his theories to the test.

Being marooned on Anomaly where technology doesn’t work, the terrain is lethal and the creatures even more so, Jon quickly learns he’s not the man he once was. Dark secrets surround the various species that call this world home. Jon’s actions here have the potential to ripple across the void of space, and touch everything in it… Maybe even the Conglomerate…

But when Anomaly sprouts synthetics-eating viruses, flesh-eating mutants and deadly magic, it becomes a race against which form of death will come first. Who will survive? Who will return?

Join us on an adventure that reclaims our humanity and saves a world!

Bonus: includes Anomaly UAR that integrates the print and virtual experience like never before.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In the year 2717, an interplanetary first contact mission to an unexplored, sentient-inhabited planet dubbed Anomaly unwittingly finds itself set up by a corrupt government official who, in order to further his own nefarious schemes, arranges for them to be stranded without hope of returning. All previous expeditions from a conglomerate-run Earth lost contact upon arrival at the unexplored world and were presumed lost, and when this team’s technology falls victim to the planet’s polymer-devouring organisms, the survivors must contend with an unknown and hostile environment without the benefit of equipment or supplies. They also encounter the planet’s very diverse, warlike inhabitants in adventures fraught with redemption and transformation for the troubled protagonist, the team’s physically enhanced military muscle, Jon. To say more would give away the very interesting surprises of this massive tome, the size of a small flat-screen TV, and painted in concept art detail on every panel by Haberlin. It’s a spectacular work whose storytelling looks and feels like a movie. Loaded with impressive painted visuals, an exciting story that fleshes out its characters and their very well-developed worlds, and a very engaging cast, this one’s a winner from start to finish. (Oct.)
