First look at new graphic novel from Image Comics America’s Got Powers

July 16th, 2014 by Christopher Williams Comments

Eighteen years ago, the strange crystal landed in San Francisco, and with it arrived Earth’s first super-humans. Every baby born on that day has a power. All but one — Tommy Watts, nicknamed “Zero.” Until one day, he does. British television star Jonathan Ross (TURF, REVENGE) and American comics master Bryan Hitch (REAL HEROES) team up to tell Tommy’s story in the new Image Comics graphic novel AMERICA’S GOT POWERS, due out in September.

Now, super-powered teens battle each other on reality television for the entertainment of millions, but when Tommy manifests a power different from any seen before, he discovers the behind-the-scenes machinations are deadlier than the combat in the stadium. The United States government and the powered kids’ mentor both have their own plans for Tommy, but neither of them counted on him and his peers having plans of their own.

With sharp, satirical writing from Ross and stunning artwork by Hitch, one of the best superhero comic artists in the business, AMERICA’S GOT POWERS infuses the superhero genre with a dash of Divergent-esque dystopia. It will be in comic book stores on September 3 and in bookstores on September 16.
