The last chapter of Phase Three is close to wrapping up. Once it does, the comic will go into a hiatus as I work on material for the next trade paperback collection. More info will come soon about the hiatus and the future of UTC. For now, here are the details for the new book…

“UTC Volume 3: Hunting for Humanity”

Tentative cover for Vol. 3

In this set of stories, the action spills out of Attic High and into everyone’s homes as things get personal for the teens. They must finally tackle the roots of their long-ignored mutations in order to move forward with the lives they truly want. Human intelligence and animal instinct clash, coming to a head in the biggest pile-up of urgent crises we’ve seen yet!
