Created and written by Humphries, HIGHER EARTH is his sci-fi follow up to last year’s indie sensation OUR LOVE IS REAL. “Space is dead. Why conquer other planets when there’s a perfectly good Earth in the universe next door? Heidi, a girl born in garbage. Rex, a soldier gone rogue. The only thing between them and their destiny is an empire of a hundred different Earths, across a hundred alternate timelines. One majestic planet dominates them all: Higher Earth.”
HIGHER EARTH #1 second print ships with a must-have all-new cover by Zach Howard and a Diamond order code of MAR128272.
