Ascension

 ASC8   (Image, 1997-2000)

™ and ©1997 David Finch

Two thousand years ago two tribes—the Mineans, a race of angelic, winged people, and the Dayaks, blue skinned and demonic—existed as one. To the Dayaks a child named Viovodul was born. So strong was his evil that scientists from both sides imprisoned him in a realm between their world and ours.

The pages containing the full formula to free him were scattered to both realms, coming into the possession of Lucien and Andromeda, who have been given fantastic powers and whose destiny it is to stop Viovodul from being released.

Originally a tale of heaven and hell, centering on the war between the tribes, the series spun into a new direction after Batt, one of the co-creators and owners, departed after issue #7 due to creative differences.
