We are back into the hopeful, apocalyptic world of Tala and Hototo. Year 2090. Six years have passed since Salvation Day, when Palladions, with their majestic powers, emerged as the protectors of humanity, saving the five remaining Megalopolis and securing the future of the human species. But nothing stays and the horizon always brings a new storm. These are dark times. Death, famine and desperation lurk around the streets of Megalopolis 9. The shield has lost thirty percent of its reach. The New Nature has learned to create cuts in the energy channels that power the Beacon and the Palladions. A neverending horde of beasts siege the remains of the city, increasing the desperation among the population. The responsibility of keeping the city afloat lies on the shoulders of Generals Nesbo and Terrassa, who have to resort to risky survival measures.
BLACK. The reconnection missions are the only thing that is keeping the population secure, but nothing seems enough. Powerlessness corners the Palladions, who fear not being able to protect the city. Everything is black, except for the white snow that covers with silence the dying, black present.
WHITE. Journeying outside of the city in search of food is the only thing that is keeping the population alive, but nothing seems enough. Fear opens its way through Megalopolis 9 like a great crack of faith that separate more and more the population from the Palladions. Snow covers the city with a heavy white mantle, invoking oblivion and nothingness.
NOTE: We Live #1 Black and We Live #1 White are two separate, but distinct issues. White isn't a variant of Black. The two issues follow two groups whose stories are happening concurrently. The main characters, Tala and Hototo, appear at various points in both. Both stories are important to the overall series. This is the way the creators designed the first issue. Ta!
