Afu Chan, Giannis Milonogiannis, Josh Tierney announce sci-fi mini-series 'HaloGen'

I saw the news of this over at Multiversity Comics, and it piqued my interest, largely due to the creative team working on it. Set to be a 4-issue mini-series, HaloGen reunites Spera artists Afu Chan and Giannis Milonogiannis (Old City Blues, Prophet) with writer Josh Tierney on a sci-fi story which sees HaloGen agent Rell investigate rumours (and should it be required: retrieval) of a gigantic, dead god found floating in space. I've got to admit, I really like that as a hook. Tierney will be scripting the book, with Chan on artistic duties, while Milonogiannis is listed as a co-creator and has contributed covers. I like the sound of this, but what I'm most excited about is seeing Afu Chan's work on another book- it's difficult to tell from that cover image alone (his is on the left, the one on the right is a variant by Milionogiannis), but it looks like he may have switched up his style a little for this, but the prospect of him on a sci-fi book, taking it away with world-building and potential spacey scenarios is impossible to resist. If you haven't already, or are wondering what I'm talking about, simply wander over to his site and gaze awhile. HaloGen will be published by Boom! and begin serialisation in March next year.
