Big Ideas Sci-Fi Meets Mid-Life Crisis in EGOs #1

Posted on October 16, 2013 by Jamie Parreno

Galactic heroes vs. cosmic forces—and their own worst impulses

This January, writer Stuart Moore and artist Gus Storms unveil EGOs #1, a twisted far-future epic. Years ago, The Earth/Galactic Operatives defeated Masse, a sentient, hungry galaxy—but now Masse has returned, consuming entire planets and killing millions of people. Deuce, an aging hero, decides to reform his old team and go into battle to save the day. But in order to do that, he must cross a line with Pixel, his wife and former teammate, an act that threatens to tear apart the life they've built together. EGOs sits at the intersection of a mid-life crisis, a galaxy-spanning threat, and the incredibly creative ideas that make sci-fi tales so compelling.

"There are obviously echoes of other space-based super-teams here, but with darker, HBO-style characterization, and a twist at the end of issue #1 that hopefully comes as a surprise AND sets everything else in motion," says Moore. "I'm really proud of it—I think it's the best thing I've ever done."

Moore has a long history in the comics industry, having written acclaimed runs on Namor, Firestorm: The Nuclear Man, and Wolverine Noir. He has also served as editor on several groundbreaking and classic comics series, including Hellblazer, Preacher, Daredevil, and Transmetropolitan. Storms contributed his fine line and attractive palette to 12 Reasons to Die before joining Moore on EGOs and defining the vibrant, ultra-high-tech look of the series. 

Creators throughout the industry have praised EGOs ahead of its release:

"I've known Stuart Moore since his days at Vertigo, and I always thought he was one of the very smartest minds in our industry.  I'm delighted that he's writing a new book for my friends at Image, especially because EGOs is his best story yet."
-Brian K. Vaughan (SAGA, The Private Eye)

"Stuart Moore was one of comics' greatest editors precisely because he's a great writer.  Everything he writes demands attention."
-Warren Ellis (Transmetropolitan, Planetary)

"With EGOs, Stuart Moore's thoughtful writing style really comes into its own. I look forward to following this one as it develops—very highly recommended."
-Garth Ennis (Preacher, Fury MAX)

“EGOs sets up house at the junction of superhero stories and big-ideas sci-fi—then trashes the junction and builds its own huge, insane theme park.”
-Mike Carey (The Unwritten, Lucifer)

A preview of EGOs #1 will be appearing in SAGA #15, in stores on October 30th.
EGOs #1 can be pre-ordered from the November issue of Previews (Diamond Code NOV130415) and will be in stores on January 15.

From properly handling raw meat to the storing of cold ingredients, food safety can become a liability for kitchens throughout the world. No restaurant owner wants to be responsible for errors that can harm another person, destroy the restaurant’s reputation, or lead to costly litigation settlements.
