“For fans of THE OLD GUARD and GOD COUNTRY comes the extra-length first issue of a centuries-spanning action epic from writer KYLE HIGGINS (RADIANT BLACK) and artist FELIPE WATANABE (The Flash)!
The Luminary. The Prodigy. The Brute. The Trickster. The Innovator. Five gods from a realm beyond our own, leaders in the “War of Immortals.”
At least, they were—before they were trapped, sent to a planet made into a prison, forced into an endless cycle of human death and reincarnation.
Christopher is 22. He’s got two loving parents and a 12-year-old sister. He works at a paint store. He’s in therapy. He’s one of the Five.
Which means, in order to save everyone he cares about, Christopher will have to reconnect with his past lives and do the unthinkable: become a god again.”
A fantastic new series, with a promising story that feels like we’re about to dive into something epic. I was intrigued, shocked, and then fully on board to see where this story goes. Issue one definitely holds a lot of promise.
The art is gorgeous and realistic, with beautiful fantasy scenes involving the gods. The colors are rich and stunning. The letters are fantastic. This first issue is the whole package and definitely not one you’ll want to miss.
Issue one is out this week!
