Sirens is a beautifully drawn, well crafted story with a diverse group of well developed characters, all based on real people (yes, one of them is based on yours truly). The plot will not disappoint a comic book fan looking for a truly interesting read. In George’s own words, the Sirens are
"caught in a futuristic war that hopefully will allow me to explore a lot of themes from the POV of all these women: environmental destruction, genocide, prejudice, imperialism, love, hate, loyalty, betrayal, heroism, sacrifice, politics and even some commentary on the comics industry itself."
Sirens is a space saga with connections to various eras in history and the heroines from them, including the Roman gladiatrix Agony, gunslinging Wild West school marm Ammo and 20th-century maid/computer-construct Sherita.
They and the other Sirens once teamed to fight off a threat to their Terran home world of Earth, and they’re brought back together in the future in order to change a reality that takes out humanity — although the rest of the universe has labeled them as terrorists.
The main plot takes place in space but he intends on using the time-jumping element to challenge himself to drawing certain historical settings, from Victorian England to feudal Japan to pre-statehood Arizona.
I cannot wait to see the saga of Sirens truly unfold and I hope to see many of you guys reading it with me! Pick up Sirens today!
