The Press Release:
New York, NY-June 15, 2017- Marvel Comics is proud to announce a unique collaboration with Dustin Bates, lead singer and founder of the multi-media, modern rock band Starset, along with fan-favorite writer, Peter David (Ben Reilly: Scarlett Spider, Spider-Verse) for an all-new original 88-page graphic novel, THE PROX TRANSMISSIONS.
Inspired by the likes of Nikola Tesla and Carl Sagan, Starset’s albums, along with videos, websites, novels and one-of-a-kind live performances, were created as part of the over-arching concept, The Starset Society. Where science and fiction collide, The Starset Society is dedicated to publicizing emerging, near-future technologies and investigating their inevitable social, economic, political, and philosophical impact on society. Through this enlightening exploration, The Starset Society has teamed up with Marvel Comics to produce a one-of-a-kind adventure like nothing seen before.
A secret transmission from the far reaches of the galaxy falls into the hands of SETI radio astronomer Dr. Stephen Browning. His world begins to unravel as he discovers the cryptic message including information of advanced technology and a dire warning from the future. After Browning seeks aid of brilliant-yet-impetuous playboy Dr. Aston Wise, the two set off on an epic journey to discover the meaning of the transmission, only to discover that they are pawns in a much bigger game. Humanity hangs in the balance as powerful forces vie for control of the future, with only Wise and Browning to stop them.

Hello there my friends, I am back with another chapter in my Five Points Festival coverage. You’ve arrived at Part Three so I’m hoping that you’ve seen the previous installments because I’m wandering through in an aisle by aisle fashion. Let’s get on down to business shall we.
Hey look its Sasha Yosselani. You probably recognize her from my NYCC posts over the last couple of years.
Since I still have a lot to do I am going to leave this introduction piece as a very simple “Welcome to the continuing presentations from the 2016 NY Comic Con”. I’m still dishing out my “Day Three” stuff because with this being the Saturday session there is a LOT to see and document. If you are just now joining us please click on THIS LINK first since it will bring you a rundown of all the chapters that have been posted before this one. Now without any further adieu, here is “Day Three: Part Two” 🙂 I’ll chime in here and there but mostly will let the photos do the talking.
Hey there, hi there, ho there it is nice to have you back at the PiercingMetal site for yet another piece of our Special Edition NYC coverage puzzle for their 2015 event. For those new to the presentation this is the third chapter so its easy for you to go back and see what you have missed and to stay tuned for what is to come up afterward. That being said lets get this party started. On your mark, get set, geek out……
Hello and welcome back again my friends in Geekdom. You have safely arrived here at the All-New PiercingMetal.com where I am continuing along with my in-depth coverage of the brand new convention by ReedPop called “Special Edition NYC”. My Day One presentation spanned five individual narratives but our Day Two will only be this one since we managed to get to almost everything in those posts. Strap yourselves in for the ride because here we go…..
I’m going to start out at the Marvel Comics area where they were not only hosting some signings but also offering fans a handful of cool giveaways. There were comic books, trading cards and a few posters to be had along with the eyeball of The Watcher in a super ball form. Cool but in a gross way don’t you think.
