Action, Adventure, Dinosaurs, Aliens, Super Science, Androids, Time-Travel… this one’s got it all! Award-winning writer-illustrator and executive producer Mariano Nicieza teams with writer David Lucatch and illustrator Matt Gaudio to introduce a sci-fi, action-adventure opus for comic-book lovers everywhere …PHAZER UNIVERSE.
The saga begins as scientist Mark Moreno becomes the victim of a sabotaged experiment while attempting to unlock the mystery of an extraterrestrial power source, Alpha-Zachyon energy. Now he shifts uncontrollably through the timestream, where his altered molecular structure manifests different extranormal powers in every era. Hunted by Krauhzz, a shape-shifting alien, Moreno — Phazer — struggles to return to the world and family he left behind.
Fellow scientist Marcus Alimor recruits Agent Three Zero, Blackray and other allies to attempt a dangerous rescue mission and retrieve Moreno. The attempt backfires and brings time-lost creatures including Krauhzz to the present, along with the superpowered terrorist Blue Sultan. But the attempt also creates a new hero, Super Liquid Avatar, an Augmented Reality android who is Earth’s last hope for salvation.
In addition to main cover of flagship series PHAZER UNIVERSE, by Matt Gaudio & Mariano Nicieza, an amazing array of industry talent joins for a bonanza of variant covers featuring prominent characters in the story:
