GOD COMPLEX gets the comic book treatment

Writers Paul Jenkins (Inhumans, Wolverine: Origin) and Bryan Lie team up with artist Hendry Prasetya (Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers) for an all-new mystery thriller in GOD COMPLEX, an ongoing series launching from Image / Top Cow this October.

GOD COMPLEX is set in the futuristic city of Delphi where a young digital-forensics investigator named Seneca finds himself embroiled in the bizarre murders of three church acolytes. Guided by his cryptic mentor, the Ruler named Hermes, Seneca uncovers a stunning conspiracy and a mystery that will turn his entire world upside down.

Join the GOD COMPLEX team on a unique vision of a digital future powered by mythological gods. GOD COMPLEX is the first original toy line-up from Jakarta-based GLITCH. It features sci-fi and high-fashion re-imaginings of mythological gods from various beliefs / regions like Greek, Egypt, China, and Japan.

GOD COMPLEX is created by Bryan Lie, who is GLITCH co-Founder and CEO. GLITCH is bringing the IP to worldwide attention, collaborating with Top Cow Productions to publish the comics to tell the rich stories behind characters and the GOD COMPLEX universe. The first comic is GOD COMPLEX: DOGMA and questions the nature of gods, religion, truth, and human faith, set in age of misinformation and post-truth.

I received this FoxBox Studio 1/6th scale "God Complex: Hermes" 12-inch figure back in October 2011 (see the action figure review posted on my toy blog HERE and HERE) and its blend of high fashion with mythical and sci-fi elements is still very refreshing up to this day :) I never tire of looking at the figure and marvel at the wonderful and clever design of Bryan Lie. Great to hear that GOD COMPLEX will be a comic book series soon.
