TWELVE characters can tap into the cosmic energies of the Zodiac signs, and they manifest as different paranormal skills in each person. NEW ZODIAX will spotlight one of the twelve individual characters in their own issue, while reinventing the ancient astrological signs for a modern era AND maintaining an interactive universe. Ambitious? Maybe, but I am confident with your help we can do it!
The NEW ZODIAX AQUARIUS is the LIBERAIDER, an elite level hacker who is the Robin Hood of Cyberspace, stealing from the info-rich to give to the info-poor. This is the ORIGIN story of our hero!
NEW ZODIAX is much like my Marvel Universe, with storylines that will cross over from one series to another. Characters will interact with one another in future stories—whether they meet for a common cause or as adversaries will remain to be seen!
The NEW AQUARIUS origin story originally appeared in the NEW ZODIAX mini-series #1 and #2, and both printings of the NEW ZODIAX Trade Paperback, ALL of which are SOLD OUT! For NEW ZODIAX AQUARIUS #1, I will be remastering the coloring and including several pages of NEVER BEFORE SEEN, behind the scenes process material.
The character of the NEW AQUARIUS/LIBERAIDER is central to the NEW Z mythos, and is very special to me, for a couple reasons:
1)--the topic of cyber-espionage is more timely today than ever.
2)--he has been bashing on the inside of my brain for decades, shouting LET ME OUT!
A prototype version of the LIBERAIDER can even be found in my very FIRST creator-owned comic book: MEGAHURTZ!
MEGAHURTZ was created by me and David Chlystek, and published by Image Comics in 1997. The story takes place in a world where corporate oligarchs are finally at open war with each other to determine who will rule the Earth, and humanity be damned!
Virtual Reality mogul and darling of the people ADRIAN ADONIS has become a genuine threat to the N-Corporation, so the N-Corp literally seeks to ELIMINATE the competition!
They create a living weapon: MEGAHURTZ, a grotesquely constructed monstrosity of muscle grafts and cybernetic implants, whose gun is literally a part of its body. MEGAHURTZ’s mission becomes an odyssey to discover its own true origins and ultimately, its humanity.
I am Joe St.Pierre, the creator/writer/artist of NEW ZODIAX. Most people I meet know me as the artist on many SPIDER-MAN and VENOM comics for Marvel. I have also worked for DC, Image, Valiant, Boom, etc. I am also a commercial and storyboard artist, and am the co-creator of the FABIEN COUSTEAU EXPEDITIONS Graphic Novel series published by Simon & Schuster.
"Liberaider is an intriguing super-cyber saga by a multi-talented writer/artist. Characters & computers combine for a story that’s as relevant as today, as new as tomorrow."
- David Michelinie (Iron Man, Spider-Man, co-creator of Venom)
"Joe St.Pierre is one of the amazing talents to come out of the early days of Valiant. A groundbreaker."
- Jim Shooter (Editor-In-Chief Marvel, Valiant)
"Joe St. Pierre has always been about one thing -- making every story the best it can be. With Liberaider, he is at the peak of his craft!"
