AfterShock Comics has announced a new series spinning out of Inaki Miranda and Roy Miranda’s We Live, which is titled Age of Palladions.

Running for five issues from Oct. 2020 until Feb. 17, We Live took place in 2084 in a world damaged by calamities and monsters. The Earth receives a message that the extinction of humanity is nigh, but five thousand children will be allowed to survive. Among them are Hototo and Tala. Age of Palladions picks up after the end of that series in 2090 and once again follows Hototo and Tala, with the Miranda brothers saying the book will explore their relationship more. New characters n the series will include General Terrassa and General Nesbo, who are responsible for the population of Megalopolis 9.

Speaking about the plot, Roy Miranda said, “The story begins six years after the appearance of the Palladions in Megalopolis 9. After an ephemeral time of prosperity, the city faces a new critical situation. We are in the middle of a very delicate moment where a decision will have to be made for the survival of the population. It’s a story that deepens in the concept of heroism; a kind of heroism that few can assume when it needs to be built from a place of defeat. The readers that have followed us since the first arc will see how the universe of We Live has grown along with the characters. Especially our main characters, who have grown physically, but mostly psychologically.”

Inaki Miranda added, “Megalopolis 9 is under attack from the New Nature. A third part of its territory is in ruins. The population that is still alive is suffering the direct consequences of a siege. Famine starts to be an approaching problem, medicines are scarce, makeshift cemeteries are being built, entire areas have been reconditioned as refugee camps. I don’t think I need to point out the specific parallelisms with our close reality.”

We are back into the hopeful, apocalyptic world of Tala and Hototo.

Year 2090. Six years have passed since Salvation Day, when Palladions, with their majestic powers, emerged as the protectors of humanity, saving the five remaining Megalopolis and securing the future of the human species.

But nothing stays and the horizon always brings a new storm.

These are dark times. Death, famine and desperation lurk around the streets of Megalopolis 9. The shield has lost thirty percent of its reach. The New Nature has learned to create cuts in the energy channels that power the Beacon and the Palladions. A never ending horde of beasts siege the remains of the city, increasing the desperation among the population.

The responsibility of keeping the city afloat lies on the shoulders of Generals Nesbo and Terrassa, who have to resort to risky survival measures. The reconnection missions are the only thing that is keeping the population secure…but nothing seems enough.

Powerlessness corners the Palladions, who fear not being able to protect the city.

Everything is black, except for the white snow that covers with silence the dying, black present.

Heightening the excitement and appeal of AfterShock’s #1 selling titles, the Miranda Brothers have created collectible trading cards for each issue in this story arc!

The responsibility of keeping the city afloat lies on the shoulders of Generals Nesbo and Terrassa, who have to resort to risky survival measures. Journeying outside of the city in search of food is the only thing that is keeping the population alive, but nothing seems enough.

Fear opens its way through Megalopolis 9 like a great crack of faith that separate more and more the population from the Palladions.

Snow covers the city with a heavy white mantle, invoking oblivion and nothingness.
