Experiments performed on an alien artifact give her and others around the globe exceptional abilities.

New Praetorians chronicles the struggles, tragedies and triumphs of Colonel Sienna McKnight.
“New Praetorians is full of talent and promise. Phoenix’s gorgeous and edgy artwork combined with Syrus’s larger than life characters are a one-two punch to the brain. A deadly female operative alone behind enemy lines fighting to escape a prison who is essentially a human weapon implanted with alien tech? YES, MORE PLEASE.” – Grant Imahara (Mythbusters)
“The New Praetorians ROCKS!! Take your secret covert super agent group, a sprinkling of culty procedural television elements with a dash of superhero techno gadgets, then apply Satine Phoenix over all of this, and you get a fun fast-moving adventure!!!” – Jon Schnepp (Metalocalypse, Death of Superman Lives)
“The action scenes are like ripping a band-aid off a scab. It is strange to have a friend for so long and not know they had something this intense inside them. I’m a little more scared of Satine than I used to be.” – Zak Smith (Gravity’s Rainbow, I Hit it With My Axe, Vornheim, A Red and Pleasant Land.)
Brilliant, eye catching cover art by Jason Shawn Alexander (Hellraiser, Empty Zone, Batman) jasonshawnalexander.com, David Mack (Kabuki, Daredevil, Fightclub) drdavidmrmack.tumblr.com & Stephanie Inagaki stephanieinagaki.com
“We created the story we always wanted to read. A Sci-fi story with a strong Eur-Asian female lead who’s duality (woman & leader) is approached with finesse.” explains Phoenix. “In the world of New Praetorians, aeons of old conflicts and deeply defined characters drive the story towards a shattering finale.”
