Against the backdrop of a widespread call for greater diversity in comic books and graphic novels, comes a new lead, female character of color named Okira. Created by the newcomer, husband and wife team of Dixie Ann Archer-McBain and Everard J. McBain Jr. Okira is a young, kind-hearted and benevolent priestess who lives an ordinary and mundane life with the feeling that she is meant for something special. She finds out one day that her feeling is right and, with the help of a disjointed group, she must save her world from total destruction.
Celflux is a superhero, sci-fi, fantasy, action-adventure, about OKIRA. A young, benevolent, kind-hearted priestess who becomes the involuntary leader of a disjointed group of strangers. They wake up one day in a remote lab without any memory of how they got there, or what happened to them. They must begin a journey of trying to find the answers to those questions, and this task is made difficult not only because of the fact that they have conflicting personalities and prejudices, but also because they are relentlessly pursued by a powerful group with a global agenda. To get the answers they seek, they must endure great loss, and when they do get the answers, they realize that they have to make a choice. A choice that will cost them everything, and whose outcome will determine the fate of their planet. The book examines themes that range from the possible link between science and spirituality and the next stage of man's evolution.
"Celflux is seamless... If Han Solo or Hal Jordan walked into a bar on New Genesia, it wouldn't feel out of place with its high-future landscapes, alien beasts, and super-human abilities."
