Icarus is a new web to print comic series from Super75Comics. Created, Written and Illustrated by Ryan Cody, Icarus is set to launch on Sunday October 10th, 2010.

In 2014, a young child with the ability to see the future see an object approaching Earth, a giant spacecraft containing a species intent on invasion and occupation. She locates the most public superhuman of the time, The Golden Templar, and convinces him to take her to a secret group of world leaders. The Amaliorata do not believe her story and cast her away. When she, and other gifted seers go public with their warning, global riots break out and the world is turned upside down with religious and economic collapse. The Ameliorata decide that the super-humans cannot be allowed to roam unchecked and continue to upset the power balance. They order the execution of every known superhuman. Major Fisher Riley is put in charge of exterminating the world’s most powerful individuals. The Ameliorata convince the public that the oncoming object to Earth is only the asteroid Icarus, preparing to make its scheduled pass of Earth.
Icarus is expected to pass Earth on June 16th, 2015.
The Icarus comic is an endeavor to bring the excitement and energy of big budget adventure comics to the world of small press. Each week two new pages will go online in preparation for a quarterly print release.
