Project, based on a Boom! Studios comic book series by Mark Sable, centers on an FBI agent and screenwriter who team up to stop an attack against the United States. The plot of the attack, it turns out, is one that the screenwriter and others had concocted in a government-sponsored think tank years earlier.
