Exordium Comic Cover

Five hundred years in the future, humanity has made a home on Atmos

Covered in noxious gas and roiling storms, populated with poisonous flora and murderous fauna, Atmos is a world of the most violent extremes. The human beings who scrape a living from this benighted rock represent the best and the worst that the Galaxy has to offer.

Freeminers and revolutionaries, gang members and void-pirates, Exo racers and corporate overlords, all living in a constant state of contention, honing their skills against one another, vying for power and wealth.

Little do any of them understand the true danger of their continued enterprise on this planet, for it is not merely their fellow humans with whom they are competing. Atmos itself seems to hate the parasitic species that has traveled from the stars to infest its surface, and will do anything and everything to rid itself of their blight.

THE RACE
FOR ATMOS
HAS BEGUN.

Section Seperator

Exordium is a nine chapter comic book series detailing the events of rookie pilot Addy Aker's inaugural ExoGP Season. Trained from birth by an off-world cult, Addy has escaped her fate and fled to Atmos, seeking to disappear into the planet's shadowy criminal underworld.

Stumbling instead into the ranks of Atmos's legendary ExoGP racing league, she will find herself pitted against the most tenacious and talented pilots in the galaxy. Racing head-to-head on deadly tracks that defy imagination, it will take more than Addy's lethal training and indoctrinated aggression to get her across the finish line first...if she survives at all.

Welcome to Exordium.

Addy Aker

Indoctrinated from birth by an off-world cult, Addy has escaped her blood soaked destiny and fled to Planet Atmos. Seeking to survive on this strange, new world, she has sold her deadly talents to the Talon Gar, Atmos’s preeminent criminal organization, and is about to embark on a planetside heist that will change her life forever.

Head shot of Oz Vulkansson

Oz Vulkansson

The son of legendary Atmosian fabricator, Heff Vulkansson, Oz is preparing to make his long awaited debut on the ExoGP racing stage. Driven from the cradle into an Exo suit by the indomitable will of his perfectionist father, Oz’s innate talent and hunger for victory are such that on any other world he would reign as undisputed racing champion. But Atmos is not just any other world.

Head shot of Rogg

Rogg

An unstoppable, once in a generation force on the racetrack, Rogg has been masterfully marketed as the new face of ExoGP in an attempt to distance the league from Atmos' legacy of unsanctioned, brutal racing. Over the past two years he has won back-to-back championships and is sure to take a third this season unless someone can rise to his level, or drag him down to theirs.
