MIAMI (AP) — Electronic music producer and DJ Steve Aoki imagines a future where humans live in harmony with technology, and he's sharing that vision in a new comic book series called "Neon Future."

The story is set roughly 30 years from now in a United States that has outlawed advanced technology. A civil war is brewing between people who have integrated technology into their bodies and those who have not.

The comic series is the first to be produced by Impact Theory . Company founder and CEO Tom Bilyeu says he realized after meeting Aoki that they both share a sense of "techno-optimism."

They've teamed up with writer Jim Krueger for what will initially be a six-issue story arc, with plans for more story arcs if they become popular.
