Meet Atomika, the Russian man-made God of the 20th century and technology set to shake up the entire planet. With America defeated, Russia has become the most powerful nation on earth and the center of the world. However, while there is peace, all is not as rosy as it appears, as the world has become a grim and dark industrial wasteland in the wake of the so-called fruits of science and industrialisation.

The first issue of Atomika: God Is Red opens in Moscow of 1929 and unveils that Atomika was a normal child that discovered his true purpose when reaching puberty. That purpose is quite daunting, as Atomika, in a world where the Russian Revolution in the early 20th century had a dramatically different outcome than in the real world, must destroy the ancient gods who have ruled the world of man since the dawn of time
