2959 A.D. Humanity developed sentient Artificial Intelligence, that spread to all matter, through molecular machine particles, waking all life to one consciousness, and a new golden age in space. They are the APEX, also known as the builders. The APEX sing in tune with the cosmos, building super highway structures and constellations, as they ever expand their network.
The Ghost Runner, a shadowy, projected figure from the APEX collective consciousness, can sometimes be seen running across the morning sky, looking to solve the deepest mysteries of the Universe.
The Apex comic was developed in 2014, as a mood piece inspired by the writings of the theorist and computer scientist; Ray Kurzweil, and his idea of the imminent technological Singularity, where Artificial Intelligence will surpassing human intelligence, which will develop beyond the event horizon of the foreseeable future, into a world we where the technology has become so advanced and abstract its difficult to predict what it is going to look like.
The comic was also heavily influenced by the music of MEGA Drive, Syntax, Droid Bishop, and other New Retro Wave artists.
