This January, hot off the heels of the highly anticipated debut of the Powers TV series comes POWERS #1 – the recharged and reborn ongoing series from Marvel’s creator owned ICON imprint. A perfect jumping on point for fans old and new, Eisner Award-winning Powers creators Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming are back with a double-sized debut issue for regular price! Now is your chance to jump on board the hit series in time for its television debut!
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 series writer 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.”
