For a visitor to the land of the Sky Shadows, it might be fair, even accurate, to refer to thousands of edifices such as this oil rig as ghosts.
It was not necessarily the loss of technology and its benefits that led to the current state of humanity, and it wasn’t even necessarily the advent of the nano-virus that plagues people like Sundog, Fallingstar and Rockjumper in Tribes: The Dog Years, the new color comic book series from Soulcraft Comics. It was the speed with which human civilization, once deprived of various technologies, collapsed.
Freed from its conflict with short-term industry, the environment, both plants and animals, reasserted itself with a vengeance. It is through this haunted landscape that Dr. Irving Adams must lead a desperate expedition to locate and activate a machine so small that it can hide behind an amoeba. It may be the last surviving remnant of human scientific advancement, and for the sake of the Sky Shadows and Dr. Adams, they hope it is not a ghost.
Tribes: The Dog Years is coming soon to Soulcraftcomics.com!
“You are not Sky Shadow.” The words are enough to provoke a fight to the death between any two self-respecting members of Sundog’s tribe, yet the turning point in this young hunter’s life is when his own chief utters the words “I am not Sky Shadow.” Sundog is a central character in Tribes: The Dog Years, the new graphic fiction series from Soulcraft Comics.
His early days are spent honing his skill, speed and instinct, but as he reaches an age where he can challenge his peers for leadership and privilege, he finds that his courage may diverge from that of his chief.
More than any other character, Sundog carries with him the weight of almost an entire civilization, if one tribe can be called that. If Doctor Irving Adams, the immortal, is successful in his search, Sundog’s strength may change the future of the entire human race.
Without Sundog’s support, Doctor Adams may never get the chance to follow his “magic” to what he believes may be the key to ending humanity’s plague. Is it his destiny to blaze a path for humanity? Will a new tribe – a Tribe of the Quest – be borne of the ragtag remnants of the defeated, the lost, the aimless? Will Sundog, a humble hunter in the Sky Shadows, be reborn as a new leader?
Only time and experience will tell. For Sundog will travel thousands of miles, and his journey will be full of fantastic discoveries and mortal dangers in Tribes: The Dog Years, coming soon from SoulCraft Comics.
The jagged shell of a technological society looms over a dilapidated landscape in the world of Tribes: The Dog Years, the new color comic book series from SoulCraft Comics.
Seattle and its environs have been particularly hard hit, as the combination of neglect and relentless inclemency have rendered a ghoulish cityscape where once stood one of the most beautiful urban areas in the world.
The questions that have not been answered are the most troubling. Rain and wind and even snow could not have pulverized the city’s buildings, yet there are no signs of what did it. Could a war have preceded the miseries of the Sky Shadows and others? If so, could that conflict still threaten Sundog and his comrades?
As dire as such danger might be, Sundog and Fallingstar cannot turn aside from their quest. An answer must be found to their affliction, or the human race may never be restored to its full stature. The buildings of these once mighty cities inspire our intrepid young hunter, Sundog. Though he may never live to see such wonders, his courage may yet lead his descendents to one day build new cities upon these ruins and return humanity to its old glory.
