So what’s Giga about?

Nobody knows why the skyscraper-sized mechs known as ‘Giga’ fought their bitter, centuries’ long war. All they know is that when the fighting finally stopped, the dormant Giga became humanity’s new habitat and new gods in one. When disgraced engineer Evan Calhoun finds an apparently murdered Giga, his society and the fascistic tech-centered religious order that controls it are rapidly thrown into chaos.

The GIGA #1 second print will be available in two different versions. The first version (SEP208040) will be a standard comic cover with a $3.99 SRP. The second version (SEP208041) will be a special foil cover on deluxe heavy-weight card stock, with a $9.99 SRP.
