NEW YORK, Nov. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- BIOWARS™ The Battle Rages Within is a new online comics series launching November 19. This richly-illustrated adventure story brings a scientific twist to the modern-day superhero battleground. Subscriptions to BIOWARS are free with registration at www.BIOWARS.com.
BIOWARS is published by Gabriel Creations.
Storyline: The unlikely hero of Biowars is Alexander Hawking, a regular guy attending a city college. Alex's father Marcus is a scientist who becomes a target of a secretive group called The Combine. They infect Marcus with a deadly germ that he inadvertently passes to Alex, and with it, a destiny. With his dying breath, Marcus makes Alex vow to expose the ruthless cabal and save the world from their threat.
To fulfill this quest, Alex's immune system must fight off the microbe that has invaded his body, where a parallel storyline takes place.
The inner-realm of Alex's body is a universe unto itself – the BioCosmos - an alien setting where strange creatures inhabit living terrain and glide through pulsating corridors. Each of these beings, known as BioWarriors, is a hero of the Nervous and Immune Systems. In Biowars, they are given humanoid forms, but they retain their real-life biological powers. The invading microbes also manifest their true menacing powers and are given monstrous designs.
The Virus Infection - the first edition of BIOWARS - is set in the BioCosmos as the attack of the virus begins.
About BIOWARS: BIOWARS was conceived by a former NYU pre-Med student who was fascinated by the way cells communicate with each other. Rather than pursue a career in medicine, entrepreneur Gabe Shaoolian created one of the fastest-growing digital media agencies – Blue Fountain Media. This successful venture allowed him to harness digital technology and invest considerable resources to develop Biowars.
Shaoolian collaborated with a multicultural creative team including writer Mike Powers (Marvel, Devil's Due Publishing) and artists Lucius Cross, Goncalo Lopes and Joana Lafuentes (IDW - Transformers).
"Studying endocrinology and understanding how amazing our inner worlds are sparked the creation of Biowars," says Shaoolian. "It's exciting to finally share Biowars with readers who will hopefully be intrigued by the storylines and by the inner workings of their own bodies."
The Biowars website was designed by Blue Fountain Media.
