Delve 09 - Tomes Abound
Our delvers are en route to exact a moth's revenge against an expert bug collector. In exchange it will lead them to the Papillius Library, an archive of knowledge nobody knows. Within our delvers will uncover secrets about their own mystifying conditions, and glimpse the true nature of the Heart.
Jul 23, 2021
Delve 08 - Like a Moth to Vengeance
Moon's Chosen Light takes a tour through Silverfish Park with fellow High-elf and avid bug collector: Camo. While they're distracted, Hyponikon takes a tour behind the velvet rope and sneaks a look at Camo's private collection. Meanwhile, at the B&B, Muz'zell eludes a vengeful Warband of Heretics. At the centre of all of this is Camo's prized specimen: a dead (for now at least) Pupilia moth.

Delve 07 - Honeymead Helpers
Our delvers find their way to a bug collector's haven on the other side of the sabotaged ski-lift where they meet two deep apiarists managing a Bed & Breakfast. Muz'zel seeks answers about their enigmatic curse while Hyponikon and Moon's-Chosen-Light admit themselves to Silverfish Park and infiltrate a prestigious entomologist's private collection.

Delve 06 - Honeyed Words
Muzz'el attempts to coerce the delvers into riding a rickety ski lift into the unfathomable depths of the Heart. From the outside Muzz'el appears lucid, but Moon's Chosen Light suspects them of supernatural treachery. Will our delvers hold fast? Or will they indulge the whim of the bees?
Jun 10, 2021
Delve 05 - Ski Lift Stranger
Our delvers must survive the abhorrent Bloodbeast they have encountered on the slopes deeper into the Heart. There will be no time to lick their wounds. At the ski lift beyond is a packless Gnoll from the other side. Not everything is as it appears with this stranger, but not everything is as it appears with Muzz'el either... The bees have plans. Our delvers cannot be allowed to interfere...
May 27, 2021
Delve 04 - The Reaperwoods
Our Delvers return to the place where their fates became intertwined. Within lie unpredictable horrors, and the threat of bees and Bloodbeasts. Can our Delvers overcome the perils of the Reaperwood, or will Hyponikon's divine greed lead them to their deaths?

Delve 03 - Godly Errands
Our Delvers locate the Temple of the Moon Beneath, but without a shipment of swords to trade they are merely another band of foolhardy pilgrims.

Delve 02 - Delve Mommy
Our Delvers' first stop is the Sword Kitchen at the Temple of the Moon Beneath. But between them and the church is a zealot with a rifle and deep-set prejudice against pigeon-brained automatons. It's up to Moon's Chosen Light to negotiate the only way he knows how - with smoke and blood.
Apr 15, 2021
Delve 01 - Into the Heart
On our first Episode of Heart: The City Beneath we are introduced to our Delvers: a sordid assortment of displaced outcasts searching for meaning in the grotesque, cavernous reaches of the Heart. Moon's Chosen Light, the Heretic, hears the profane sirensong of the Moon Beneath calling to him; Muzz'el, the Deep Apiarist, seeks a cure for their twisted form of honeycomb and reunion with their familiar pack; and Hyponikon Screed, the Incarnadine, follows salt trails and scrimshaw carvings to the Rhinestone Skywhale, a grim reminder of his life of servitude in the Spire.

Report 07 - Into the Boiler Room
CW/ body horror Our duplicitous detectives are in urgent need of a secret gathering spot, and the dilapidated ruin of the old school building may be just the thing they need to evade the prying eyes of the student body. The old school building's infamy is no joke, and it's clear to our detectives that dark forces have co-opted the ruin for Outer Scientific spellcraft. An extradimensional horror lurks in the exploded boiler room, and our student investigators must rely on a delinquent's swordplay, and a semester's worth of arcane knowledge, to pacify it.

With only 12 hours before Anomaly X crashes into Earth, The New Wave must pull themselves together to save the world one last time. However, preparing to fight a solar-charged Anomaly X is no small feat, so that means the teens will need everything to go smoothly before the battle. After all, it's only 12 hours. Nothing bad could possibly happen in 12 hours that would severely implement their ability to fight a super-charged, multi-dimensional monster. Nothing bad at all.

Issue 35 - Double or Nothing
The New Wave have uncovered Zeegark's newest weapon of mass bloodsucking, and if they don't stop it then it's headed directly for the Spire.

The Invoker tries to separate Clavaria from her new host, but ends up splitting off more than he bargained for.
Feb 27, 2020

Issue 32 - Keeping It Together
The Invoker's contract with Rook Industries comes with dozens of obligations and clauses, and Arthur Castle has sprung one in the form of a press conference. The team is reaching new levels of sleep-deprived and team morale is bad, with Hyperdrive still worried about The Invoker's protagonist delusions and Lakshmi reckoning with the fact that her secret identity is as good as gone. Nobody is even close to camera-ready right now, but the show must go on.

Alone and bleeding out, Hyperdrive must make his way out of the Underprison while Lakshmi and the Invoker come to his aid. With no time to adjust to her new body, Lakshmi must put rediscovering herself - and by extension her hero identity - on the back burner in order to save her friend, and Halcyon city once more.

Issue 29 - Into the Metaverse
“Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.” Evidently the Rook Industries machine is not to be trifled with, so what will the outcome be when Invoker uses it to heal a severely wounded Shikari? With a reluctant Hyperdrive standing to the side, Invoker is free to grab a hold of the reins of Shikari’s destiny in any way he sees fit. Let us all hope it is for the better...after all, every action has its consequences.

Issue 28 - A True Understanding of the Universe
What exactly does the experimental Rookie machine do? As far as The Invoker is concerned, it simply enhances his pre-existing talents... But is that all there is to it? He will have to find out on the fly as Arch Lich Lanius Balsure, a Gothic Worm, and several armed missiles threaten the lives of everyone in Exemplar Park. These are the most threats the New Wave has ever tackled simultaneously. They are going to have to get over their grievances quick. Or Else.
Jan 9, 2020
Issue 27 - Bargaining Chips
For better or worse, the team is back together and all geared up just in time to save Shorthorn. Rook Industries obviously has their employees best interests at heart, as they prep the teens before take-off. Though, giving an unstable teenager an all-powerful, untested military-grade weapon right before he flies into battle probably isn't the most sound decision. To say Lakshmi and Jack are distrustful of their new pseudo-employers and their tech is an understatement, but when you have a supervillain to take down there isn’t much choice left.
Jan 2, 2020
Issue 26 - Meeting Sarah
So many choices and such little time; having regained the ability to truly think for himself for the first time in months, it seems Jack is at a loss. Does he stay with his estranged teammates, or will he run away once more to the distant shores of Australia? Before he can make any final decisions, he must save Shorthorn from the clutches of Mr Living before time runs out. With Lakshmi’s faith in the team failing, and Rook Industries vying for Alex’s loyalty, there is obviously only one solution to all of these problems: A Lunch Date!

What a way to start a 17th birthday! Not many teens request to have their limbs violently and unprofessionally removed for their birthdays, but luckily Jack is one of those people. As he and The Magician freefall towards the sidewalk below, Lakshmi returns just in time to greet a last-minute party guest. While no one remembers inviting a 10-foot tall wolf, it doesn’t take long to figure out that a certain, recently-estranged Aunt may be the one responsible for the party crashers.

Issue 24 - The Bonds Maketh the Man
The New Wave is no stranger to battle damage, but with no safe place to run to, and a teammate bleeding out fast, a usually simple situation quickly turns sour. With Lakshmi having just taken a strong stand against her authority as a mother, how will Mrs Deshpande react to a room full of bloody and wounded teens? Will the team be able to keep the remaining identities a secret? When a life is on the line, smaller things have a tendency to fall through the cracks of control. Let us hope this isn't the case for our young heroes.

Meanwhile, Lakshmi and Alex must come to terms with the reality of their recently expanded career path. Will Alex choose to join The Rookies? Will Lakshmi go with him and abandon their team leader?

Issue 22 - Rookie Mistakes
What is the line between Good and Evil? Who draws it, and what is it made of? Can a trio of teenagers even begin to grasp at the subtleties such concepts beget? With Adaptaur fully within Clavaria’s grasp, there is no telling whether his teammates' words will be heard after their confrontation with the reformed Page Turner. Tensions can only run higher however, as The New Wave rushes off to meet with Sir Arthur Castle at Rook Industries.

The hangover has set in, but The New Wave still have some loose ends to tie up. Bullwark makes good on his promise to teach Lakshmi to fight while Alex receives a call from Rook Industries regarding his enigmatic, reality-altering powers. Something's eating Jack though, and it isn't the alien fungal spore on his arm. Worldbuilder is still, technically, at large... But is bringing her in the right thing to do? Tune in, and find out!

Issue 20 - From The Mouth Of God
Stuck in an alternate dimension, there is no one to call on for help when all hope is lost. As his teammates memories fade as the seconds tick by, The Magician will need to speed things up if they are ever going to make it back home. With Jacks mistrust of Alex, and Lakshmi’s chemically induced, psychogenic fugue state wreaking bloody havoc in the Lab, some things are easier said than done. After all, this is an alternate dimension, nothing done here matters! Nothing is real, there are no consequences! Right?

Issue 19 - Back to School
Mothman's hammer has smashed through Halcyon City's timeline, and now Jack and Lakshmi are victims of the Doggingsworth Diet - mind-altering drugs, propaganda, and algebra homework. It falls to Alex to rescue his teammates, but with supervillains lurking around every corner of the academy that's easier said than done. Can The Magician convince his brainwashed friends of their true identities and roll back the effects of Mothman's hammer? Not even he knows. This might be the end.

Sukeban Dracula: The Halloween Special
Nothing brings out the raw feral energy in people like Halloween does; so ghosts and ghouls alike will feel right at home for today's special OVA. Join Fitz, Sweeny, and Inkwell as they strive to save Beach City from the wrath of Count Dracula. What makes this Dracula so special? Well, unlike many other Draculas, ours comes with a compelling mayoral campaign and a cruise ship. So, how will three unscrupulously rowdy teens stand up to the Lord of Darkness and his army of political sycophants? Not very well probably.

Issue 18 - Science Experiments
Splitting up the team right before disaster strikes doesn’t seem to be a habit The New Wave is willing to break anytime soon. Without the guise of his heroic persona to aid him, Jack finds himself stuck between old and new enemies alike. Who - or what - are the Tricksters, and what do they have to do with the Doggingsworth Academy? Also, who let the Karens bring guns into a school's Open Day?
Oct 17, 2019
Issue 17 - Open Day
The Doggingsworth Academy's open day has finally arrived, and there is more than a simple Science Fair in store for The New Wave. Indoctrinated children, grisly members of the faculty, and nutty high school science experiments abound. Can our juvenile justicers keep Lakshmi's mother (and her mother's, well-meaning friends) safe from the superpowered, coked-up Neo-Nazi: Mothman? Tune in, and find out!

Issue 16 - Getting Dogged
With the almost flawless victory from Marker under their belt, our teens are left with little time to prepare before they face the Doggingsworth Children's Method Academy. While Jack takes the time to get to know both of his roommates, Lakshmi and Alex find themselves dragged back to the Bullpen. How will Jack react to a mentor that seems to have moved on? Will his insecurities - mixed with the whispered words of his symbiote - begin to fray at the fragile trust he has in his teammates? Only time will tell...at least until they face their next supervillain. The New Wave has fought villainy before, but can they ever be truly prepared for a Nazi Geneticist with Mothman Superpowers?

It’s their first supervillain after the Anomaly X attack; how will our frazzled team of teenagers handle the stress of success in the face of peril? Will doubt rear its ugly head and get in the way of what could be their first clean, and flawless victory? With the Magician on a no-damage-run of the battle, Adaptaur coming to terms with his live-in Aunty, and Shikari focusing on problems that aren’t her own... let’s just say the team has stacked the odds against themselves this time.

It’s been two weeks since Anomaly X was defeated by The New Wave, and a lot has happened in Halcyon City in the interim. The world now knows of Bullwark’s Underprison, as speedy trials are being conducted for all of the accounted for escapees. Shorthorn and Worldbuilder are still M.I.A, and with Bullwark and A.E.G.I.S tied up in court, there’s no one left to track them down. But what of our heroes? How are they coping in the aftermath? Can such rampant destruction, and political chaos be counted as a victory by three insecure teenagers?

The guilt from failing to stop Trevor the iguana lays heavily on the minds and hearts of Shikari and Adaptaur.

With The Magician's powers magic so obviously out of control, he and Adaptaur head off to the esteemed Rook Industries in hopes of finding a way for him to fully control his powers.
