Graphic Universe has unveiled a look at interior pages from its upcoming OGN Topside from creators J.N. Monk and Harry Bogosian, releasing October 1.

Here's Graphic Universe's official synopsis for Topside:

"Meet Jo Wilson, repair technician. She’s talented. Headstrong. And… in a lot of trouble. Jo keeps things running inside the Core, an underground society on the verge of collapse. All she asks in return is that people stay out of her way. When a routine assignment goes haywire, Jo has no one but herself to blame. To fix the slipup, she’ll have to head topside, onto her planet’s lawless, unruly surface. Jo’s journey sends her wandering through deserts, riding on the backs of giant beasts and cutting deals with con artists and bounty hunters. And all the while, the agents of the Core are in hot pursuit." 

“Jo makes a mistake that damages a vital component to one of her planet's core systems. Her mistake is just the straw that broke the camel's back, but she blames herself and makes it her own responsibility to fix it no matter what,” writer J.N. Monk explained in a statement. “The idea that the responsibility of the world lies with any one person isn't true; it'll take all of us to see things through. And that's something Jo has to discover for herself."

“I want to be able to create worlds that people find themselves believing in, and wanting to visit,” added artist Harry Bogosian. “Even if the fictional world is a dark place I want it to be one that is so intriguing that the reader feels a compulsion to visit it. The best fictional worlds have always been ones that your mind visits even when you are not currently reading or watching it.”
