The McKain Chronicles is a rip-roaring alien adventure with a Native American twist. Then, creator Richard Hatch offers up a preview magazine of The Great War of Magellan, a new sci-fi series developed for television.
The McKain Chronicles: Battle for Earth
This series from Digital Webbing is steeped in Native American mythology, as well as rip-roaring sci-fi adventure.
Aiden McKain, a Navy SEAL, has learned that he is descended from a mystical tribe of Lakota warriors, and he has been granted powers and abilities that will allow him to fend off an impending alien invasion of Earth. Simply put, he is the planet’s only chance for survival against the enemy’s onslaught.
As McKain’s war gets underway, he is confronted by Kira, a mysterious woman who makes him privy to information that could truly turn the tide of the invasion, but McKain’s life will be irrevocably changed.
While the story is touch run-of-the-mill as far as alien invasion tales go, the artwork is quite beautiful, giving The McKain Chronicles: Battle for Earth an ethereal sort of quality.
