Genetiks™ Vol. 1, complete
Writer: Richard Marazano
Artist: Jean-Michel Ponzio
Genetiks is a pharmaceutical company on the cutting edge of biological science. Thomas Hale is one of thousands of employees in the Genetiks’ labs. Like his colleagues, he had agreed to give a drop of blood to his employers—a drop of blood that will allow researchers at the company he works for to decode his entire genome. As the drop of blood is property of Genetiks, Thomas will become, in effect, the first man to be privately owned by the corporation he works for.
Judge Bao Vol. 1, #4
Writer: Patrick Marty
Artist: Chongrui Nie
To combat the scourge that goes along with great prosperity, Chinese Emperor Ren Zong gives broad magistrate powers to Judge Bao. He becomes a symbol of justice for the people of the land. His aversion to corruption and dedication to justice make him a popular hero, with many enemies. Bao finds himself in a small village where a mother mourns her son, languishing in prison, caught in a complicated love triangle, and accused of a murder he says he did not commit. Will Judge Bao find the real murderer?
