Aphrodite V is arriving in July from Image. Bryan Hill, about to take Detective Comics out for a spin, and Jeff Spokes are the creative team for this adventure as the titular biomechanical heroine takes on a menace fueled by black market technology.
Is Aphrodite V related to Aphrodite IV and Aphrodite IX? It sure looks that way.
Official PR follows:
Writer Bryan Hill (POSTAL, BONEHEAD) and artist Jeff Spokes will launch APHRODITE V this July from Image/Top Cow.
In the near future, Los Angeles is a city on the brink of evolution, struggling with a new wave of terror fueled by black-market technology. Enter Aphrodite V: a fugitive from her masters, seeking individuality and purpose. She is the bleeding edge of biomechanics, and L.A.’s best hope against a new enemy—one that seeks to become a god among machines.
“This is a great way for people unfamiliar with this side of the Top Cow universe to jump into a story about the intersection of technology, humanity, and justice,” said Hill.
One machine wants to destroy the city. Another has come to save it. Only one will survive.
APHRODITE V #1 (Diamond code: MAY180030) hits comic book shops Wednesday, July 18th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, June 25th.
