Vault Comics has announced Giga, a new sci-fi series from writer Alex Paknadel and artist John Le.
Nobody knows why the skyscraper-sized mechs known as ‘Giga’ fought their bitter, centuries’ long war. All they know is that when the fighting finally stopped, the dormant Giga became humanity’s new habitat and new gods in one. When disgraced engineer Evan Calhoun finds an apparently murdered Giga, his society and the fascistic tech-centered religious order that controls it are rapidly thrown into chaos.
“You’ve seen giant robots battling mechs and kaiju, but what happened decades – even centuries – after the fighting stopped,” asked GIGA co-creator and writer, Alex Paknadel. “Our book depicts a world in which the robots destroyed every metropolitan center on Earth, instantly rendering a good chunk of the human race homeless. Then, when their war inexplicably and abruptly ended, they went dormant for so long that humanity moved in. The robots that destroyed our cities became our cities, and – perhaps inevitably – objects of religious worship to boot.”
“Now, imagine what would happen if one of these gods-cum-living skyscrapers was murdered. That’s our book. That’s ‘GIGA’.”
Giga #1 arrives in the summer of 2020.
