The authorised comic adaptation of Olaf Stapledon's seminal 1935 science fiction work - exploring the theme of the Übermensch (superman) in the character of John Wainwright, whose supernormal human mentality inevitably leads to conflict with normal human society and to the destruction of the utopian colony founded by John and other superhumans.

"If we could wipe out your whole species, frankly, we would. For if your species discoveres us, and realises at all what we are, it will certainly destroy us.And we know, you must remember, that homo sapiens has little more to contribute to the music of this planet, nothing in fact other than vain repetition.It is time for finer instruments to take up the theme."

Masterfully scripted by Chris Murray and beautifully illustrated by Nel Robinson
