This....is Raze the Gods. A historically based sci-fi/fantasy 5 issue mini-series that depicts the rebellious origins of the Maya Mythology through the exploits of its three integral figures.

Now, I know what you're thinking, you're wondering if this tale is historically accurate, if it is galvanized by proven and confirmed truths thoroughly researched and vetted, and I have this assertion to make....it depends. Yep,it depends explicitly on how much you think you know. See if you know next to nothing then I assure you this is all true! All of it, including the shaman who turns himself into a jaguar, the creepy 'god' that gets cursed and then killed by his own kind, the Feathered Serpent Kukulkan and his legendary defeat...and of course Xibalba, the Place of Fright....ooh, you know that place is real!

Fascinated yet? Well, you should be.
