WHY WE LOVE IT: Claudio Sanchez and Chondra Echert have given us such BOOM! Studios favorites as KILL AUDIO and KEY OF Z. Their latest book takes the superhero trope of “the neverending battle” and turns it into a completely different beast.
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: TRANSLUCID is the superhero story you’ve wanted but never thought you’d see. It explores the thin line between heroes and villains, and the space between childhood hope and loss.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: The Horse has been the arch-enemy of The Navigator for years. But The Horse feels The Navigator’s moral compass slipping, and even a villain can’t let that happen. The Horse decides to get a closer look into The Navigator’s past that he’s buried deep in his subconscious and find out what drives a person to make the right choice, and what propels someone to make a selfish one. Thus begins an exploration of why a young man would take the mantle of a superhero.
