Read the synopsis here:
In the year 2095, humanity is on the right track to recover from catastrophic climate change and to begin a new era of advancement. People from every background intermingle in clean megacities across the globe, and a commitment to tolerance marks their developing international society. But a group of beings called Deywos, who claim to be Earth’s ancient gods, are harassing the human cities, hoping to terrorize humanity back into submission. The only person who can stand in their way is Bro-D, a genetically-modified teen who was altered and trained to save lives in the face of a mass crisis. Practically invulnerable, Bro-D will engage the Deywos’ champion, Bregghammer, in a running battle of fists, weapons, and will. But on the day where his abilities matter most, Bro-D will finally discover the truth behind his powers, and the one thing that can bring him down for good.
Creator Humeniuk explained, “Bro-D is a quasi-indestructible teen who must defend the center of human resistance against an unstoppable demigod… all while protecting his crush from the ensuing mayhem! And on the day when his abilities matter most, Bro-D will realize the limits of his powers, the nature of sacrifice… and the one thing that can break him for good. Bro-D mixes a British Invasion narrative approach with Shonen-style art and the broad canvas of bandes dessinées albums.”
