GENETIKA: Graphic Novel – Darion D’anjou

Dr. Eugene Poulos is a genetics whiz on the corporate fast track. When he stumbles across a secret group with the key to the fountain of youth among other highly advanced technologies, Gene quickly finds himself alienated from family and friends, on the run from the police, wanted by the FBI, and worst of all hunted by a group of people who see and hear farther, think and move faster, never sleep, live forever, and who will stop at nothing to maintain the privileged secrecy of their existence.
