Æon Flux was an avant garde sci-fi animated television series that aired on MTV in the early 1990s. It began as a series of dialogue-free shorts, and later had a season of 10 half hour episodes. Æon Flux was created by Korean American animator Peter Chung (also the man behind Phantom 2040, which used the same animation style as Æon Flux). A live action motion picture loosely based upon the series and starring Charlize Theron was released in late 2005.
Released by Dark Horse Comics in 2005 to tie in with the movie was a four-issue miniseries based upon the film versions of the characters. Although the characters and situations were based on the newer movie versions, the penciling technique deliberately emulated Peter Chung\'s unique style from the TV series.
A graphic novel called Æon Flux: the Herodotus File was published in 1995, which vaguely explained some of the show\'s setting and backstory. It consisted of an assortment of false documents from the world of Æon Flux, and a short story-board style sequence described as \"security camera footage\", rather than a standard comicstrip story.
The graphic novel fell out of print in the years following the show\'s conclusion, but was reissued in 2005 to tie-in with the movie.
