Here’s a sneak peak of Morning Star Alpha, a graphic novel written by John Scalzi and illustrated by Mike Choi. John partnered with Industrial Toys to bring the Morning Star story to life in the form of the graphic novel and game.
The Morning Star story takes place 120 years into our future when humanity receives mysterious alien signals. Earth’s leaders initiate The Morning Star Protocol to handle the situation.

The video explains how the graphic novel and game uniquely work with each other. You can check out John Scalzi’s description of the novel and game here.
