(Royal Oak Michigan- June 4, 2013) The Bible has a cryptic and morbid description of the final battle between God and Satan... but no ending. The Arcane Awakening tells the story of how this ancient prophecy finally unfolds.
The Arcane Awakening is "X-men" meets "The Da Vinci Code".
The descendants of ancient angel/human hybrids, or Arcane, long dormant abilities spring to life when Satan’s appears on earth. God’s army (The Ministry) and Lucifer’s army (The Demonic Blight) battle each other one last time for all the marbles… earth and humanity… winner take all.

What reviewers are saying:
“The Arcane Awakening is a really great read! Awesome quality! Great concept- great art… Can’t imagine someone not wanting to pick this up!” Matt Busch Official Star Wars Artist
“The Arcane Awakening #1 makes for an interesting introduction. Written by Dominic Riggio, The Arcane Awakening has interesting tone and details that both allow for extreme super-powered action as well as a quick development of story. The Arcane Awakening is an interesting read with excellent art and well worth checking out, especially if you’re interested in a super-powered celestial war.” BuyIndieComics.com –Dale Wilson
“Mess Bucket Comics has done something unique in recreating a biblical story overlaying what can only be described as a Tarantino-style explosion of violence, mayhem, and overt raucous behavior. It is a brief and absorbing jaunt that is over so quickly that you are left wondering: What the hell just happened? I imagine we will be seeing more of The Arcane Awakening very soon.” Empirical Magazine- Dan O’Brien.
