You're still in the system known as Sol. Except this time each planet is habitable and developed its own life. The people are humanoid, mostly.   Q:I heard something about a comic?
Oh yes! The main comic is still in development, but you can read the first few pages of Little Blue if you click here.   Q:What's going on?
Sol is invading. The resentful sun sends its angelic armies: the Scourge. For now, they're being held back at Mercury by Penumbra.   Genre
