To coincide with the TV debut of Powers on Sony’s PlayStation Network, Eisner Award-winning creators Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming are back for a recharged and reborn ongoing series from Marvel’s ICON imprint, and we have a preview of the first issue for you right here…
Hardened homicide detectives Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim are back, investigating the crimes and solving the murders involving superpowered criminals. If a superhero falls dead from the sky, they’re there. If a super villain winds up dead in the gutter, they’re the first on the scene. But having barely survived the most harrowing case of their careers, Walker and Pilgrim are faced with the toughest decision they’ve ever had to face. The discovery of a power no one has ever seen before will lead Walker and Pilgrim down a new path.
“What a miraculous time for Powers as the TV show becomes a reality to millions of PlayStation owners all over the world,” says Brian Michael Bendis. “What a great opportunity to roll up our sleeves and make a bold new chapter for our characters. As the first issue opens, new powers are popping up all over the place and with that new cases and new headaches for our beleaguered Powers detectives. And most importantly a great new jumping on point for new readers.”
Powers #1 is out on January 14th, with a special double-sized issue for $3.99.
