City of Tomorrow

 CIOT   (WildStorm, 2005-2006)

™ and © 2005 Howard Chaykin, Inc. & WildStorm, an imprint of DC Comics

Following a devastating terrorist attack, scientific genius Eli Foyle used advanced nano-technology to construct Columbia, a Utopian city where lucky citizens enjoyed an idyllic existence while lifelike bio-cybernetic robots handled every menial task.

With poverty, disease, and war globally rampant, Columbia was a safe haven from harsh reality. Unfortunately, every Eden has its serpent. In this case, a techno-virus turned the city into a dangerously oppressive police-state, complete with nano-tech versions of gangsters, prostitutes, and other “undesirables.”

It falls to Eli’s estranged son Tucker, former troubled teen runaway turned Black Ops agent, to clean up the mess. Unfortunately, their reunion is marred by several unexpected revelations.

Loaded with random flashbacks and abrupt scene changes, this series is often confusing, though it pulls together by the final issue. Of course, Howard Chaykin provides plenty of visual appeal with his standard iron-jawed men and voluptuous women.
