LION FORGE ANNOUNCES CATALYST PRIME
Catalyst Prime will debut in May with a one-shot written by Christopher Priest and Joe Illidge and illustrated by Marco Turini, followed by seven titles introduced over the next seven months.
“Basically the whole universe is started from an asteroid heading to Earth and a private corporation called the Foresight Corporation, which produced our teaser memo,” says Joe Illidge, “They send four astronauts on a suicide mission to stop the asteroid. What happens leads to the emergence of superhumans on our world. After that, most of the books will take place one year after that.” Illidge continues “Diversity is a buzzword that has become obsolete because it’s been used for a lot of PR… Diversity should be intrinsic if you have an expanded mindset and worldview so when you’re going to creators they’re not all heterosexual, they’re not all Caucasian males. They might not all be from the United States. They’re from different industries. They have different political backgrounds. Diversity is automatic. But we want to create something new and exciting that doesn’t have a burden of decades of continuity. We want everyone to feel invited to this world and this world will evolve into a world that will more accurately reflect the demographics of the one that we live more than a lot of other fictional superhero comic universes.”
