FIRST LOOK: A Bold New Direction Begins in POWERS #1!

December 16th, 2014 by Marc Comments


This January, hot off the heels of the highly anticipated debut of the Powers TV series comes POWERS #1 – the recharged and reborn ongoing series from Marvel’s creator owned ICON imprint. A perfect jumping on point for fans old and new, Eisner Award-winning Powers creators Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming are back with a double-sized debut issue for regular price! Now is your chance to jump on board the hit series in time for its television debut!

Hardened homicide detectives Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim are back, investigating the crimes and solving the murders involving superpowered criminals. If a superhero falls dead from the sky, they’re there. If a super villain winds up dead in the gutter, they’re the first on the scene. But having barely survived the most harrowing case of their careers, Walker and Pilgrim are faced with the toughest decision they’ve ever had to face. The discovery of a power no one has ever seen before will lead Walker and Pilgrim down a new path.

“What a miraculous time for Powers as the TV show becomes a reality to millions of PlayStation owners all over the world,” says series writer Brian Michael Bendis. “What a great opportunity to roll up our sleeves and make a bold new chapter for our characters. As the first issue opens, new powers are popping up all over the place and with that new cases and new headaches for our beleaguered Powers detectives. And most importantly a great new jumping on point for new readers.”

This double-sized issue also includes an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at the making of the POWERS TV series with never-before-seen pictures from the set!

Two of the biggest creators in comics bring you a bold new beginning for the blockbuster series. No fan can afford to miss the highly anticipated POWERS #1 when it makes its exciting debut in comic shops this January!

Retailers: Debuting in conjunction with the launch of the POWERS TV series and Brian Michael Bendis’ scheduled appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers in support of both the comic and television series, retailers are strongly encouraged to check their orders in anticipation of fan demand.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
