OMEGA: THE UNKNOWN #1 (of 10)
Written by JONATHAN LETHEM with KARL RUSNAK
Art by FAREL DALRYMPLE & PAUL HORNSCHEMEIER

The story of a mute, reluctant superhero from another planet, and the earthly teenager with whom he shares a strange destiny — and the legion of robots and nanoviruses that have been sent from afar to hunt the two of them down. Created in 1975 by Steve Gerber and Mary Skrenes, the original Omega The Unknown lasted only ten issues but was a legend to those who recall it — an ahead-of-its-time tale of an anti-hero, inflected with brilliant ambiguity. One of Omega’s teenage fans was award-winning novelist Jonathan Lethem, who has used the original as a springboard for a superbly strange, funny, and moving graphic novel in ten chapters.

After barely making it out of the Infinicide’s fortress alive, the surviving members of M.O.D.O.K.’s team discover their score has been stolen from them – by the son of the MANDARIN! To make matters worse, Puma has lost his powers, the Living Laser is about to merge with the universe, Rocket Racer can’t work up the nerve to ask Nightshade out on a date, and A.I.M. is poised to make its move against them. Fortunately, there’s no greater way to foster team unity than to track down and beat the stuffing out of the guy who ripped off the most powerful weapon in the universe from you after you spent so much time and energy stealing it in the first place.
