The new series launches next March with two different first issues.
Brothers Inaki and Roy Miranda will return to the universe they created in the hit miniseries We Live next year, as the Age of the Palladions picks up six years after the original series.
AfterShock will actually release two version of the first issue, a “Black” version and a “White” version, with their own distinct previews and slightly different synopses.
“The story begins six years after the appearance of the Palladions in Megalopolis 9,” Co-writer Roy Miranda said. “After an ephemeral time of prosperity, the city faces a new critical situation.We are in the middle of a very delicate moment where a decision will have to be made for the survival of the population. It’s a story that deepens in the concept of heroism; a kind of heroism that few can assume when it needs to be built from a place of defeat.The readers that have followed us since the first arc will see how the universe of We Live has grown along with the characters. Especially our main characters, who have grown physically, but mostly psychologically.”

“Felicia Hardy- the Black Cat- gets tangled up with the Infinity Stones, some of the most dangerous prizes in the universe. Felicia may be the most accomplished jewel thief on the planet, but when those jewels hold the power of the cosmos, it’s a whole new ball game. Felicia is in a race against the others who would seek to control the stones for their own ends- like Nick Fury (and a secret someone you won’t see coming!),” MacKay said. “Who can cross the world’s most dangerous men, wrangle a pack of villains hopped up on fragments of infinite power, (hopefully) get the job done and look great all the while? The Black Cat, that’s who!”
