In this information-filled panel, fans will be treated to exclusive announcements, images, and videos on three sci-fi properties poised for a transmedia explosion, with Archaia's upcoming graphic novels providing a cornerstone in each campaign. Hawken is a free-to-play mech first-person-shooter game from developer Adhesive Games' and publisher Meteor Entertainment. Archaia will debut the original hardcover graphic novel that will serve as a prequel to the storyline in the game, and will feature the talents of Khang Le (Flight), Jeremy Barlow (Mass Effect: Homeworlds, Star Wars), Greg Tocchini (Last Days of American Crime), Francisco Ruiz Velasco (conceptual artist on The Hobbit, and Pacific Rim), Nathan Fox (DMZ, The Haunt), Christopher Moeller (JLA: League of One), Moritat (Elephantmen, Transmetropolitan), Bill Sienkiewicz (Electra: Assassin), Michael Gaydos (Alias, True Blood), Brian Thies (Winter Soldier, Dark Tower), Bagus Hutomo (Shrapnel, Heavy Metal), Stefano Gaudiano (Daredevil, Amazing Spider-Man), Alex Sanchez (Star Wars: The Old Republic), and Federico Dallocchio (Modern Warfare 2: Ghost). Featuring executive editor Joe LeFavi (Immortals: Gods and Heroes).

Cyborg 009 was created by the legendary Shotaro Ishimori (Power Rangers, Kikaider) and is considered one of the most influential manga series of all time. Since its debut in 1964, it has remained in print all over the world, including here in the U.S. As part of a new resurgence of original Cyborg 009 material, including a new animated feature film being released in Japan this fall, Archaia will publish an original hardcover graphic novel that reimagines the classic story from a modern, Western aesthetic, featuring artwork from the incomparable Trevor Hairsine. Preview art and previously unseen materials will be showcased for the first time at the panel. Featuring writers F. J. DeSanto (Immortals: Gods and Heroes) and Brad Cramp (Invertigo).

Space: 1999: Aftershock and Awe is the first of a series of hardcover graphic novels based on the late-1970s science fiction TV series. Author Andrew Gaska (Conspiracy of the Planet of the Apes) and artists David Hueso (GI. Joe: Storm Shadow), Gary Morrow, and Miki team up to reignite this classic property about the inhabitants stranded on a moonbase after a disaster sends the moon hurtling out of Earth's orbit and into space. The panel will feature never-before-seen artwork and a preview of remastered artwork from legendary creators such as John Byrne that has not been seen in nearly three decades.
