The series consists of four different stories told over three issue arcs, each having its own artist, and each blending a different genre with prospective science-fiction:

  1. "Lust For Life" - horror-like (art by Frank Quitely, covers by John Eder)
  2. "La Tormenta" - crime-like (art by Warren Pleece, covers by John Eder)
  3. "Renegade" - western-like (art by James Romberger, covers by Stephen John Phillips)
  4. "Repro Man" - romance-like (art by Steve Pugh, covers by Stephen John Phillips)

With all stories taking place in the year 2020, the four stories were loosely connected by a genetic relationship between the main protagonist of each tale.
