Humanity’s Last Hope Rises In ‘Origins’ #1 First Look
by James Ferguson
Next month sees the debut of Origins, a new limited series from BOOM! Studios exploring a stunning view of the future where humanity’s last hope may be the person who brought about its destruction in the first place. Check out an early preview of the first issue below.
One thousand years after humans have gone extinct and artificial intelligence has taken over the world, a single man is brought back to life—David Adams, the genius whose technology was responsible for the destruction of his species, and who has been given a second chance at life in order to save mankind and undo his biggest mistake.
But even with the help of Chloe, his first creation and the android that revived him, he may not be enough to reignite the spark of humanity or stop the AI overlords who plan to eliminate the last hope for mankind. David and Chloe must embark on the greatest journey of their lives, as he seeks to find redemption and discover if humanity can—or should—have any kind of future.
Origins is created by Arash Amel, Joseph Oxford, and Lee Toland, written by Clay McLeod Chapman, illustrated by Jakub Rebelka, colored by Patricio Delpeche, lettered by Jim Campbell, and produced by Brian Kavanaugh-Jones. The first issue features a main cover by Rebelka. It’s set for release on November 4th, 2020.
