Sexy Cinnamon girl, cool Bodhisattva, rampaging Rumpzilla, and weird Ink LaRue are part of the cast of this crazy, cheeky comedy comic strip. The adventures they get into are really quite saucy and not for innocent eyes. Cinnamon girl is a buxom, incorrigible wild-thing, barely restrained by Bodhisattva who's just too cool for words, she mercilessly teases Ink LaRue, but he clearly deserves it.

What happens when ordinary people suddenly become massively super-powered, possessed of abilities well outside of the dreams of any normal person? Comics tell us they become either super heroes or super villains, this comic looks at it another way… They become gods. Or at least that's how they think of themselves: utterly outside of normal human life and needs, not bound by any laws, rules or conventions except their own. It becomes the job of a government agency to manage these powerful forces. Our story starts with a senior member of that very agency…
The art is digital full colour. I think it's a mixture of digital paining and photo manipulation. The story is drama, action, SciFi superhero.
