Pullbox Preview – Resurrection #1

Resurrection #1 (Oni Press –  Guggenheim / Dumeer) – Oni Press comes through with what will be a modern day sci-fi classic.   The issue opens up with earth under an alien occupation and humanity driven either underground or into alien laboratories.   Hope is scarce and paranoia is widely driven into the common psyche.  This seems cliche, except that Resurrection begins after the aliens leave.  People start to dig themselves out, try to figure out what has been going on for ten years and why the aliens have gone.  Our ensemble characters slowly try to piece together what has happened and who they can have at their backs… Resurrection is a story about rebuilding lives, both individually and nationally.  Marc Guggenheim (Wolverine) does an outstanding job of character introduction and development while laying the groundwork for what seems like will be a nail-biter story arc.  David Dumeer’s art is a perfect companion for the dark yet intelligent story.  Fans of Battlestar Galactica, Lost and Heroes… this one is for you!  Resurrection ships out in late November form Oni Press… reserve your copy at your local comic shop, you will not be disappointed!
