All about Go!Anna and Epoch
While Go!Anna and Epoch are only two of many characters featured in Magellan, their roles are sigificant.
Epoch (aka Vlad Epoch): is a hugely popular superhero (with great strength, invulnerability and the ability to fly) plus he's a member of the supergroup Force Magellan. He's also the father of Charisma, a first-year cadet at Magellan Justice Academy. Epoch makes numerous appearances throughout the comic (including the full length story Buying the Stairway to Heaven). The pages which lead him directly to What Goes Up... can be read here: The big day...
Go!Anna (aka Annie Summers): She is an Australian superhero with a long tail, considerable athletic talent and the ability to climb walls. As What Goes Up... starts she has been on the trail of a stolen artefact. For your convenience, here are links to the pages leading up to that moment:
The story continues after What Goes Up... in Chapter 3: Daze (use the NEXT buttons at the bottom of the page to read through the story)....
