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.
This week on the Major Spoilers Podcast we dive into the Rising Stars Compendium from Top Cow Productions. Rising Stars is a 24-issue comic book limited series by J. Michael Straczynski about 113 people (called “Specials”) born with special abilities following the appearance of a mysterious light in the sky above Pederson, Illinois. The series explores how society may react to the advent of superpowers, and how those who are Specials may react towards society and each other. Rising Stars was one of the first comics produced under Straczynski’s own Joe’s Comics imprint for Top Cow Productions. As always,Â the
Thereâ€™s nothing wrong with an origin story, especially when it is about a character few comic book readers have little knowledge.Â For masquerade, readers not only get an origin origin, but also a Dynamite Entertainmentâ€™s take on her modern origin.
