A taut sci-fi drama by exciting newcomer Justin Giampaoli (Rome West) with captivating art by comics virtuoso Andrea Mutti (Rebels, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Control).
Government and religious agencies clash as our understanding of human history collapses when a UFO discovered in a confidential location in a Russian mining operation calls into question the origin of humanity.
A cultural anthropologist consults with US Naval Intelligence to investigate the discovery of an extraterrestrial ship buried under the ice for thousands of years in Siberia. The meddling Russians, Vatican officials, the international media spotlight, and her own insecurities all threaten her efforts to keep the fabric of society from crumbling as mankind discovers its startling origin.
