Human: Oceanic is a 160 page, digest sized, Hard cover with dust jacket, Original Graphic Novel written by Phil Smith (Witchblade: Due Process, Trinity: Blood on the Sands) and illustrated by J.K. Woodward (X-Men Origins:Beast, Peter David’s Fallen Angel, and Star Trek/Doctor Who).
Human: Oceanic is the story of future where human experimentation has become accepted by the worlds nations, giving the benefit to some and damning others to a life of forced servitude and torture. Of course it does not stop there. With the doors to Human experimentation blown open the Military Industrial complex initiates a series of trials secretly called “Human: Oceanic.” A research project designed to give soldiers on the front lines the ability to predict enemy actions in both hand to hand combat as well as higher level precognitive abilities at the command level. The project has an unintended side effect opening up the subject’s consciousness to past and future realities as well as the path of particular lives. The consciousness splinters as the subject’s mind travel’s various paths into alternate pasts and futures.
Human Oceanic has been coming together for about 10 years…let me explain. In 2001/2002 I met J.K. Woodward via the internet while he was living in Germany. I pitched him an idea for a Science Fiction adventure story. Together we created several comics worth of material that never made it to the market. 10 years in the comics industry later working for different companies (Top Cow, IDW, Marvel, Skybound and others) we are re-editing and re-launching the project with what we’ve learned in the last 10 years.
