About Parallel Man
Parallel Man is being launched in October 2014 as a 7-issue comic mini-series, tablet game, and 12-minute animation pilot. There are plans to follow with a Parallel Man deck builder game, subsequent comics runs and an animated series. The multi-platform approach FutureDude Entertainment has employed for Parallel Man's release is known as Transmedia, because it transcends one form of media into an inclusive, multi-platform media experience.

Eric Chu, designer of the Cylons in Battlestar Galactica (2004), contributed vehicle & tech designs to Parallel Man. Dorion Sagan, science writer and son of Dr. Carl Sagan, is the science advisor for Parallel Man. Parallel Man is written by Jeffrey Morris and Fredrick Haugen.

The story of Parallel Man: Invasion America follows Commander Nick Morgan — an intelligence agent from an evil version of America in an alternate universe. His government, known as The Ascendancy, has attacked and enslaved eleven other Earths and has its sights set on our world as their next target for their empire.

Nick spent his childhood secretly learning of the freedom in other Americas from his grandfather, Tobias Morgan, and struggles to fulfill the deadly goals of his leaders. Now, after stealing an advanced vehicle prototype and his A.I. companion, Atlas, Nick seeks out the leaders of a former rebellion known as The Futurists (led by a parallel universe version of Dr. Carl Sagan) for their assistance in assembling a legendary weapon that could stop the Ascendancy forever.

Nick is pursued by Mackenzie Cartwright, daughter of the president and commander of the all-black Hellfighters Squad in the segregated Ascendancy military. Her motives are complex. She is loyal to the Ascendancy, but the culture of her home world is not friendly to her ambitions for power or her relationship with Captain Glenn Douglass, one of the soldiers under her command.

Parallel Man: Invasion America is exciting; the world is immense; the characters are interesting. Like any good science fiction, it touches on some what-ifs that will help provoke interesting discussions. (For instance, the Ascendancy is a parallel universe in which the civil rights movements never happened.) Overall, Parallel Man's tone is pro-science, pro-scientist, anti-imperialist, and a fun adventure that explores power, resistance and the costs of freedom.

Young Justice comics fans will be interested to know that not only is the art by Young Justice artist Christopher Jones, but it is colored by Zac Atkinson, who was also the colorist on the Young Justice comic books.
