Axiom-man … One night, Gabriel Garrison was visited by a nameless messenger who bestowed upon him great power, a power intended for good. Once discovering what this power was and what it enabled him to do, Gabriel became Axiom-man, a symbol of hope in a city that had none.

Presently, Axiom-man’s world is on the verge of descending into total darkness at the hands of Redsaw. His personal life is also a mess and he’s barely managing to keep life as he knows it from collapsing, both for himself and for the planet. The last thing he needs is to suddenly be sucked into a parallel universe to tackle a new foe. But, perhaps, with Auroraman’s help, the two can work together to find the Cobalt Crusader a way home before chaos reigns supreme in both their universes.

“Excited to see two of my favourite indie superheroes by two of my favourite indie creators teaming up! Can’t wait to find out what dangers these prairie protectors face off against!” – Andrew Lorenz; creator/writer of Canadian Corps, LEGACY, and New Guard (September 17 Productions).
