In the series debut issue of Giga, disgraced engineer Evan Calhoun stumbles upon a dead Giga, the skyscraper-sized mechs that now house and reign over humanity. In Giga #2, Evan’s return to the dead mech makes him suspect #1 for murder. Read the full synopsis from Vault Comics here:

Evan should never have gone back to the dead Giga, but he did, and now he’s a murder suspect. Meanwhile, Legs is deteriorating at an alarming rate. The Red King–the oldest and largest of the Giga–is revealed, prophesied to unleash hell on a world whose sins the great mech took into itself centuries earlier. As an old friend of Evan’s returns, he devises a desperate plan to locate the dead Giga’s real killers.

Co-created by writer Alex Paknadel (Empyre: Celestial Messiah, Friendo) and artist John Lê, the science fiction tale features colors by Rosh, letters by Aditya Bidikar, and designs by Tim Daniel. The second issue will also have a cover by Lê and a variant cover by Adam Gorham.

Giga #2 is set to release on Wednesday, December 9. Head to your favorite local comic store to snag your copy of the issue.
