Colonel Sienna McKnight obsessively pursues her mother’s killer. Her journey of revenge evolves into a fight for the fate of the world and a unique orphan girl.

Sienna must put aside her selfish desires for justice, to fight an evil that has plagued humanity since the dawn of history. Experiments performed on an alien artifact give her and others around the globe exceptional abilities. Sienna and her special ops team must unite with allies she never dreamed of from the sands of the Wandering d

esert of Khorasan, to Geneva, to San Francisco and the outer limits of cold dark matter space. New Praetorians chronicles the struggles, tragedies and triumphs of Colonel Sienna McKnight.

“New Praetorians is full of talent and promise. Phoenix’s gorgeous and edgy artwork combined with Syrus’s larger than life characters are a one-two punch to the brain. A deadly female operative alone behind enemy lines fighting to escape a prison who is essentially a human weapon implanted with alien tech? YES, MORE PLEASE.” – Grant Imahara (Mythbusters)

“The New Praetorians ROCKS!! Take your secret covert super agent group,  a sprinkling of culty procedural television elements with a dash of superhero techno gadgets, then apply Satine Phoenix over all of this, and you get a fun fast-moving adventure!!!” – Jon Schnepp (Metalocalypse, Death of Superman Lives)

“The action scenes are like ripping a band-aid off a scab. It is strange to have a friend for so long and not know they had something this intense inside them. I’m a little more scared of Satine than I used to be.” – Zak Smith (Gravity’s Rainbow, I Hit it With My Axe, Vornheim, A Red and Pleasant Land.)

“We created the story we always wanted to read. A Sci-fi story with a strong Eur-Asian female lead who’s duality (woman & leader) is approached with finesse.” explains Phoenix. “In the world of New Praetorians, aeons of old conflicts and deeply defined characters drive the story towards a shattering finale.”

The Digital Lizards Of Doom Show Live At Meltdown!
Ever wondered how a record label works? Us too until Matt Alcobia came in and gave us the skinny.
We start the show with Dan complaining about having a broken knee-cap.
In honor of the new Avengers movie being right around the corner, today we picked all “team-ups” themed comics for our Dizzy Doom’s Comic Boom segment.
We close the show out with Matt Alcobia, one of the owners/directors of an independent record label – Noize Cartel Records. He talks about his unique approach to running a label and tells us all the stuff you want to know about one but were afraid to ask..

For more info on Noize Cartel Records, hit up this url:
