The Galaxy Isn’t Big Enough for These E.G.O.s

The Galaxy Isn’t Big Enough for These E.G.O.s

Posted on August 5, 2014 by Jennifer de Guzman

Sci-fi superhero graphic novel from Image Comics in September

Deuce was once the toast of the galaxy, the teenage leader of E.G.O.s (Earth/Galactic Operatives), a team that defended humanity from evil forces. Now, in the September graphic novel from Image Comics, E.G.O.s VOLUME 1: QUINTESSENCE by Stuart Moore (Civil War, Web of Spider-Man) and Gus Storms (Twelve Reasons to Die), he’s an aging egomaniac trying desperately to hold on to his former glory, while his wife Pixel, the image-obsessed daughter of a super-villainess, barely tolerates him.

When the E.G.O.s’ deadliest villain, the world-absorbing entity known as Masse, returns, Deuce’s goal of relaunching the E.G.O.s is no longer just a matter of pride: The future of the galaxy depends on it.

“Deuce is under enormous pressure to assemble this team fast, in order to take down Masse,” Moore explained in an interview with Comic Book Resources. “There's a crucial line where Pixel asks him, ‘How do you plan to staff, train, and launch an entire superhero team in one week?’ The answer: He'll do anything he has to. But yes, he likes the attention as well.”

Moore teamed up with artist Gus Storms when Storms’ art caught the eye of comics editor and colorist Marie Javins, who is also an instructor at the School of Visual Arts.

“Stuart wanted something lively, vital; space with a little bombast,” said Storms. “He mentioned liking the visual irreverence of the Legion of Super-Heroes, where everyone’s power is neon and just a little bit silly. It seemed like a good fit here, the comic has a pretty black core so I thought a candy-colored shell would fit nicely.”

A space opera for all lovers of sci-fi and superheroes, E.G.O.s will be in comic book stores on September 3 and in bookstores on September 16.

The common rail system prototype was developed in the late 1960s by Robert Huber of Switzerland and the technology further developed by Dr. Marco Ganser at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, later of Ganser-Hydromag AG (est.1995) in Ober?geri.
The first successful usage in a production vehicle began in Japan by the mid-1990s. Dr. Shohei Itoh and Masahiko Miyaki of the Denso Corporation, a Japanese automotive parts manufacturer, developed the Common Rail fuel system for heavy duty vehicles and turned it into practical use on their ECD-U2 common-rail system mounted on the Hino Rising Ranger truck and sold for general use in 1995.[3] Denso claims the first commercial high pressure common rail system in 1995.[4]
Modern common rail systems, whilst working on the same principle sensor are governed by an engine control unit (ECU) which opens each injector electronically rather than mechanical. This was extensively prototyped in the 1990s with collaboration between Magneti Marelli,Centro Ricerche Fiat and Elasis. After research and development by the Fiat Group, the design was acquired by the German companyRobert Bosch GmbH for completion of development and refinement for mass-production Common Rail Nozzle . In hindsight, the sale appeared to be a tactical error for Fiat, as the new technology proved to be highly profitable. The Common Rail Injector Valve had little choice but to sell, however, as it was in a poor financial state at the time and lacked the resources to complete development on its own.[5] In 1997 they extended its use for passenger cars Common Rail Injector . The first passenger car that used the common rail system was the 1997 model Alfa Romeo 156 2.4 JTD,[6] and later on that same year Mercedes-Benz C 220 CDI.
Common Rail Shim & Gasket kit have been used in marine and locomotive applications for some time. The Cooper-Bessemer GN-8 (circa 1942) is an example of a hydraulically operated common rail diesel engine, also known as a modified common rail.
