Seven centuries have come and gone since the success of the Aphrodite Protocol, the primary goal of which was to save mankind. But that world is gone, replaced by a seemingly more violent and harsh reality.
From their deep slumber arose Nine who would rule this planet, each in its own way. This is a story of but one of those fated to be a god amongst men. This tale is known as Athena IX 1. The time of the Ascension is here; few would recognize that term, however. For the most part, it seems that people living are unaware of anything other than oppression.
Of course, Athena herself calls it order. Located in the far north of the Old World, the less than hospitable region has been transformed into an industrial city-state where every citizen is given a task, a purpose. Every single person is a cog in the proverbial wheel that keeps their world contained and self sufficient.

Highly detailed panels are used intermittently with a simpler, more angular technique that delivers the consummate science-fiction-influenced setting. While this was a lot different than the Aphrodite IX series, it is meant to be.
There are some characteristics that are similar, but the differences far outweigh them. Again, it is meant to be the next step, the next evolution if you will.
