Afterburn, a sci-fi adventure based on books published by Red 5 Comics, is set against the backdrop of a postapocalyptic planet Earth whose Eastern Hemisphere has been wiped out by a massive solar flare, leaving what life remains mutated from radiation. The story revolves around a group of treasure hunters who extract such objects as the Mona Lisa, the Rosetta Stone and the Crown Jewels while facing mutants and pirates.
