SOCKET is the terrifying true story of America’s first all- robot investigative team. Set in a disturbing apocalyptic future, their fast paced adventures focus on defeating surreal and supernatural threats with a slick Silver Age style.
The mechanical world of SOCKET has a distinct visual style, a dystopian future realm of jetpacks and hover cars, yet with one foot set firmly in 1963.
The SOCKET Universe is divided into three basic areas.
The Robocracy – An impossible robot city, with towering spires and a dark robot ghetto. Some reluctant citizens are “half- men”, or human beings who possess a required percentage of cybernetic modifications.
The New Federalists – the last remnants of America. A loose federation of heavily armed and violent patriots. They hate robots.
The Greater Pan- Asian Collective (G- PAC) – A nation where all technology has been banned for the last three centuries. The populace is ruled by a mysterious religious figure called the Red Goddess. No foreigners are allowed in or out.
Cast of Characters
