Vol 1: The Doctor is In, illustrated by Alitha Martinez
Doctor Cecilia is a gifted surgeon working for "Doctors Without Borders" when she discovers she may be the future of human evolution. It's a phenomenon she calls "Ignited." Humans placed under extreme stress or afraid for their lives manifest super-human abilities. For Dr. Cece, it so happens that she thinks and can project herself into the nine different learning modalities to solve any problem she's put in. But, she's not the only one. With Ignited sprouting up all across a volatile U.S and world landscape, how can they come together to put their powers to good use, and what does this mean for the evolution of the un-ignited humans?
Illustrated by Dom Reardon and Matthew Dow Smith
Rebellious Teen Nissy (nickname for Nicnevin) has her life in London uprooted by her mother after being expelled from her school for drugs. Mom takes Nissy and her younger brother to a village in the North of England to detox from fast-paced city life. The family is supposed to be cleaning up grandma's house, left derelict for many years, but Nissy and her brother have other plans, always absconding and leaving mom to do all the heavy lifting. There, Nissy meets an interesting older man investigating the mysterious past of the village, including witches and druids. Nissy reads some of the family history from her grandma’s diary, and finds out there is more to them than she first thought.
