Don Diablo’s Sci-Fi Comic Hexagon
You may know Don Diablo as a famous Dutch DJ, but did you know that he also writes his own comic books?
This month, Don Diablo will release his new science fiction comic Hexagon, in collaboration with Impact Theory (Tom Bilyeu) and Michael Moreci (Wasted Space, Black Star Renegades). Hexagon is an interstellar story aimed at young audiences about a boy named Don who accidentally causes an alien invasion and gets sucked into an intergalactic battle.
“HEXAGON” is a nostalgic coming of age story reminiscent of the Last Starfighter, coupled with epic Star Wars like galaxy adventures. The story revolves around a lonely boy, Don, who is obsessed with winning the hottest video game “Crucible.” The trouble is, his father forbids him to play. Don loves his father, but when he leaves on yet another business trip, Don sneaks out with his friends to an all-night game-a-thon with the intention of impressing a girl. Don overshoots the mark, and to everyone’s surprise, on his first quarter ever, he’s able to beat the game everyone called “impossible to beat.” In an instant, his world is turned upside down when his victory triggers an alien invasion and sucks him into an intergalactic battle that has been raging for years.
“I loved the creative process we shared building this vision of our fantasy sci-fi world,” said Don Diablo, “Tom put together a legendary team for my crossover into comic books. This is the beginning of many inspiring stories to come.”
Hexagon is planned as a five-issue series in 2020 in both a printed format and an online version. The first issue will debut Friday during Day 2 of the New York Comic Con at Javits Center.
