An intense night takes an unexpected turn as the Niantic Project Laboratory located inside of CERN is finally shuttered. But the mysterious origins of Exotic Matter, and its potential for mankind, are too important for the corporations interested in exploiting it, and they converge on what was once the NIA's prized project, intent on getting their hands on the remaining researchers at the facility.
However, what starts as a military operation quickly takes a turn into the unknown as other dangerous players with their own agendas also arrive on the scene, intent on turning the chaos to their own advantage, and redefining the future of Exotic Matter.

It is interesting to see the new comic from Tycho. It appears that he didn't 'see' me there. Psychic shielding. It is interesting that he saw me quite clearly at the Magic castle.
I will never confirm nor deny the veracity of yesterday's release from Hulong which concerned a private conversation between Zeke Calvin and myself. However, I do protest the posting of such things without verification. Private conversations should remain private. On a lighter note, I have heard rumors that Tycho is releasing another comic. It is fun to see the events of your life illustrated, despite the fact that those were very hard days. Of course, as much of what is in Tycho's comic relates to classified material, I have to be careful about what I say.
I am getting very bad vibes about Tycho. If anybody out there is in contact with him, tell him to go underground. Stay on the move.Forces are closing on you. Energies familiar to me. Elude and evade. Expose your art to the public. Your art is your weapon. Use your vision to blind them.
