Sci-fi, fantasy, literature and comic books all merge together with the new graphic novel entitled Fictionauts, which pits a small band of science heroes against villains trying to unravel reality.
Here's Studio 407's synopsis pitch:
They've battled, Moby Dick, matched wits with Dickens, and befriended a kingdom of evolved sea monkeys! They're the genre hopping heroes of Hypercity – the FICTIONAUTS!
Fantasy is a serious business for this team, as they scour fictional worlds to right dangerous anomalies and preserve the balance between reality and imagination. But recently, a rash of unexplained disturbances across the fictional universe has started to tear it apart, and they face the ultimate challenge when the mysterious Agent X threatens to bring down the barriers between our world and the world of stories. Dive headlong into the madcap, mind-bending world of the FICTIONAUTS!
