The world is filled with weird, messed-up @#$%. It’s the job of CVO (Covert Vampiric Operations) to protect humanity from supernatural danger. That job has become harder recently. First there was the INFESTATION. Zombie hordes threatened countless dimensions. Then there was OUTBREAK. Aliens and demons teamed up to escape their underground imprisonment. All of which has led to CVO team leader CROSS becoming super-powered from magically enhanced technology, ARTILLICA. Which in turn leads to a whole mess of cosmic unbalance. Just another day at the office for CVO!
