Following a successful Kickstarter campaign, Anthony Ruttgaizer’s The F1rst Hero is back with a new mini series entitled The F1rst Hero: Fight For Your Life, which catches up with Jake Roth, the titular hero, who is the only person to manifest superpowers and not lose his mind.
“Fight For Your Life picks up about a week or so after the end of The Monster (Volume 1),” states Ruttgaizer. “Jake is still coming to grips with doing battle with both the U.S. Extrahuman Task Force and Fat Alvin’s gang of extrahuman thugs all of which ended with the death of Scott Winters, the boy he was trying to save.” The series manages to balance both the wonder of exploring a life with superpowers and the repercussions of those abilities. “Keeping [Jake’s] powers a secret means he needs to carry on with ‘life as usual.’ But the reappearance of some very old friends means that life Jake’s life is about to take another very unusual turn.”
“We’re very proud of our burgeoning superhero line at Action Lab,” adds Vito Delsante, Associate Director of Marketing. “The F1rst Hero is a big part of that. It’s unique and fresh and is a big anchor to our line.”
