***TRIGGER WARNING: SCENES OF LYNCHINGS AND OTHER VIOLENCE AGAINST PEOPLE OF COLOR***
Writer: Ed Williams Art: Miguel Angel Ruiz & Tim Wasney Publisher: Arclight Comics
WHAT IS IT?
An introductory issue into a new superhero universe more culturally diverse than the Big 2. It introduces some of the characters and sets up the story and concept throughout that reality's history.
It reminded me of the powerful myth aspect of American Gods mixed with the idea of cosmic/elemental power of old school anime, like Ronin Warriors, maybe. Hard to put my finger on it exactly, but that's the first one to come to mind.
WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
This first issue acts as an introduction to the greater world of Arclight Comics, a sort of cornerstone or foundation the publisher plans to build on for all future stories, all branching out from this one event.
