This March, Archaia, an imprint of award-winning publisher BOOM!

The series will be written by Tierney and illustrated by Chan. Previously collaborators on the Eisner Award-nominated series Spera, the trio has come together to create a new sci-fi series in the vein of Prophet, Rocket Girl, and The Fifth Element.
“Josh, Afu, and Giannis have already proven they know how to create sprawling worlds and well-rounded characters, and now they’re taking us into the deep reaches of space for a unique adventure,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “You’ll meet Rell this March in the pages of HaloGen, and her story is a very cool sci-fi thriller.”
In HaloGen, there’s a rumor on Cityship Q that the gigantic body of a dead god was found floating in space. Rell, an agent working for the HaloGen organization, is tasked with finding the location of the god and retrieving it by any means necessary. Using her ability to form hyper-realistic holograms, Rell is about to take on the first mission she might not be able to finish.
