The Empire State, New York City's otherworldly and microcosmic twin, is dying. The Fissure that kept it alive and attached to the Big Apple has gotten disconnected; it remains in New York City but has gone from the Empire State, leaving it dying a frozen, entropic death.

But even though Wartime is over and her heroes are gone, the Empire State is not giving up that easily. And in its streets, the hints of rebellion stir.

From official release/information:

Product Description: The Empire State is dying. The Fissure connecting the pocket universe to New York has vanished, plunging the city into a deep freeze and the populace are demanding a return to Prohibition and rationing as energy supplies dwindle.

Meanwhile, in 1954 New York, the political dynamic has changed and Nimrod finds his department subsumed by a new group, Atoms For Peace, led by the mysterious Evelyn McHale.

As Rad uncovers a new threat to his city, Atoms For Peace prepare their army for a transdimensional invasion. Their goal: total conquest or destruction of the Empire State.
