Shortlisted for the Excelsior Award Black 16+ KS5

Three teenagers discover an unearthly creature with incredible powers who needs prey to survive - but as they try to use his powers for good, it may be these humans who pose the greatest threat to the world. 

Eisner Award-nominated writer Simon Spurrier (Sandman Universe, Coda) and acclaimed artist Chris Wildgoose (Batman: Nightwalker) present a subversive coming-of-age story about changing the world - and the lines we'll cross to get everything we want in it.


Alienated Synopsis

Three Kids Called Sam. One Alien Bioweapon.

Three teenagers, each an outcast in their own ways, stumble upon an unearthly entity as it's born. As they bond over this shared secret and the incredible abilities of their new discovery, the trio soon realizes the truth: this creature is dangerous...and in need of prey.

But as each of them tries to decide how they can use this newfound power to do some real good in a broken world, they'll find that the greatest threat to humanity may not come from the stars - but from the truth behind their seemingly good intentions.
