Marcus Perry posted a sneak peek of the upcoming Descendant series over in the Major Spoilers Forum. Instead of keeping the goodness only for those select few who have taken the time to register and join, I figured why not share it with everyone.

From Image Comics:

This July, indie superhero favorite writers Michael Dolce and Marcus Perry join illustrator Mariano Navarro and cover artist Tyler Kirkham for their series exploring the dangerous side of superpowers, DESCENDANT.

“It’s very hard to find a new spin on superpowers, but I think Mike, Marcus and Mariano have done it,” Image Comics Vice-President Jim Valentino said. “DESCENDANT is completely different than any other book on the stands, but will be a big hit with fans of SLEEPER, CAPTAIN AMERICA and SECRET WARRIORS while surprising them like no other book can.”

In DESCENDANT Rayne Santiago, a United States counter-terrorism soldier, is forced to return to her South American homeland after years of exile due to abusing her own innate pyrokinetic abilities. There she she receives word of her brothers’ abduction by a rogue pharmaceutical conglomerate bent on using their DNA to manufacture super powers. Michael Dolce and Mariano Navarro’s experience in the small press superhero field combined with Marcus Perry’s past writing high-octane action films combines to tell a superpowered blockbuster the likes of which hasn’t been seen.

DESCENDANT #1 (MAY090301), a 32-page full color comic book for $3.50, will be in stores July 15th, 2009.

Thanks Marcus!

    Gosh this reminds me of Ghost in the Shell. I know Rayne isn’t anything like Motoko, but the feel of this is so much the same. Looks exciting!
