STAIRWAY, VOL. 1 EXPLORES JUNK DNA AND THE IMPLICATIONS OF A HISTORIC SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERY
PORTLAND, OR, 05/24/2018 — Writer Matt Hawkins (THINK TANK) and artist Raffaele Ienco (Batman: Sins of the Father) team up for an all-new original graphic novel series beginning with STAIRWAY, VOL. 1 this August.
STAIRWAY, VOL. 1 follows a postgraduate student who discovers a way to unlock information hidden deep in our “junk DNA,” and parts of bio-schematics and other pieces of baffling data are found. This discovery triggers the largest scientific initiative since the Manhattan Project, with teams of scientists working to collect and collate this information. But will they find a stairway to heaven, or will they unleash something that will kill us all?
