SWAGG 1: SPOOK
The World Community Games are about to take place with no spectators - but online conferencing organisation, HOST, have figured out an incredible way to livestream it across the planet. The whole world sits up and takes notice. And so do some people who are out-of-this-world ...
Like Janey Brown, aka Jane Blonde. She'd thought her spy life all over when she carried out her last mission iwith the irrepressible SPI:KE, G-Mamma, until one day, from the shadows, Gideon Flynn appears.
He's building a team to uncover what HOST are really up to - and to carry out some secret missions of his own.
Together, they track down some unusual superheroes. Jack Bootle-Cadogan - Jack BC, or Anubis, to his friends. Matilda Peppercorn, legendary kickboxer with fabulous feline skills. And Prince Stein of the Huckenbeck dynasty, who's very old and very young, all at the same time.
And the adventure begins. But are the team willing or even able to do what Flynn wants? It’s time to find out. Meet SWAGG.
SWAGG 2: School of ICE
"There's never been anywhere for people like me, Jack. Like us."
Jack B-C - Doghead, to his friends - is mega-proud to be setting up the SWAGG team's School of Inter-Connecting Energies in his stately home, for unique individuals like Jane Blonde, Matilda Peppercorn, Stein, Gideon Flynn ... and Jackanubis himself.
But some people will stop at nothing to bring SWAGG down. Can they handle vile infiltrators, who call themselves HOPE but are very far from it? What about tackling mysterious new students and avoid being controlled by crackle power? And can they figure out how to follow Flynn deep into the Shadows, before he vanishes forever?
It's back to his Ancient Egyptian roots for Jack B-C, and back to the drawing board for SWAGG. Because it's not just the School of I.C.E. that they're fighting for. It's something unimaginably huge ...
SWAGG 3: Sorcery
Catgirl and head of the Runes Matilda Peppercorn is called to SWAGG action when a swarm of strange visitors bring a message to the School of I.C.E.
Someone, somewhere is waking up.
But who? Scotland's mysterious fairy folk and famous monsters? The terrifying race known only as 'the Others'? Or something much, much worse?
Yes, yes and yes!
It's down to Tilly to save trees, witchkind and find out some very interesting things about herself, if she can stop SWAGG and the Guardians fighting. Because Tilly's always been a legend...but she's about to discover her ultimate destiny.
SWAGG 4: Soulforce
Darkness is spreading. Destructive forces are stealing across the planet, causing rifts in families, in continents, in the Earth itself. And SWAGG’s beloved leader, Gideon Flynn, is rapidly becoming more shadow than light.
As super-scientist Stein races to create a way to bring Gideon back from the Shadows, with the help of his old friend Frank and his new SWAGG team, they realise that Flynn is always secretive for a reason. He knows something. He knows what’s coming. And he knows how to stop it.
So if SWAGG can’t bring him back before he disappears forever into the blackness, it’s going to spell disaster . And it won't just be the end for Gideon and SWAGG. It will be the final showdown for everyone on the planet.
