A perfect future of intergalactic travel and community. Every newly discovered planet is unified culturally through a monolithic structure known as the Galactic Relay. Although the towering monument is meant to inspire conformity of ideas, technology, and progress - many resent the foreign structure. Jad Carter, a Relay employee, must keep the peace and act as an emissary to new civilizations. But when he finds the Relay's mythological creator, Hank Donaldson, his idea of reality and the universe shatters.

RELAY is an exploration of monoculture, identity and the deceptive nature of legend, set in a thriving future where humanity forcibly assimilates new worlds.

Written by Zac Thompson (The Dregs) from a story by Zac Thompson and Donny Cates (BABYTEETH, God Country, Redneck) with art by Andy Clarke (REPLICA, Batman) and Ryan Bodenheim (The Dying and the Dead, Red Mass on Mars). Volume one contains the entire first arc -issues 1 - 5, plus the #0 origin issue from Free Comic Book Day 2018.
