Two cities, two different worlds... divided! 150 years after the world is devastated by a cataclysmic event, the supercity of Asencia towers over the rest of humanity. Asecenia has become a symbol of the best and brightest and is synonymous with progression and technological advancement. Conversely, Ascencia's sister city Bethany is rotting away, falling into Ascencia's shadow both metaphorically and physically. It's loose collection of slums live on Ascenia's scraps, and whatever outdated technology the warring gang-lords who control the city can salvage and resell. The process of gaining entry into Ascencia and joining the world's elite is difficult. Currency alone is not enough; talentalone is not enough. Only the truly cunning will find a way into paradise. This is the status quo: the chosen live in Ascencia and the forgotten live in Bethany. Enter Arthur Thomas, an inspired Detective hailing from the poorest regions of Bethany. He is pulled from his station to help the baffled Ascencian police with a unique problem: a murder they cannot solve! Though they are the greatest investigative minds in modern history have failed, will Detective Thomas succeed where they have not? His journey will take him through a winding path of deception, betrayal and depravity. Shining a light on the darker parts at the very heart of Ascencia's power! For fans of Issac Asimov and Agatha Christie, Ascencia is the first comic book written by artist and musician John Dolmayan. It is a story centered on humanity and the infectious nature of power. Collects issues #1-6 of Ascencia.
