Agent 1.22 is a cyborg operative of Project: T.E.R.R.A. (Technologically Enhanced Regimented Reconnaissance Agent), run by the world-protecting Agency. Before every mission, she is thawed out and her next mission is downloaded into her brain. She is currently tasked with finding a cure for the insidious Tempest Virus that is ravaging the Outer Colonies. Every time she finishes an op, she is debriefed, mind-wiped, and frozen.
Who is Agent 1.22? How did she become a cyborg? Can she stop the dreaded Tempest Virus before it makes its way to Earth?
Matt Henning struggles to contact the Mnemosyne while Agent 1.22 encounters some mysterious allies.

Some thoughts on the latest issue of digital comic series Agent 1.22
I really like that front cover – it stands out well, with the red around the teddy bear bursting forward, drawing you to the teddy and Agent 1.22 holding on….
We kick off the early part of this issue in an emergency situation, and it’s more about how Agent 1.22 is being handled, rather than how she is handling it. There are some interesting dynamics going here, with some clear problems in the chain of command – including outright lying to a superior!!
Following up, there is some decent action on Agent 1.22’s ship, with some slight reasoning for the attack and why it has been temporally been thwarted. There are no answers yet, but the questions are known by us, and it’s clear that there are people who have the answers.
Some nice world building!
