by James Ferguson
AfterShock Comics has announced that Descendent #1 has sold out at the distribution level and is being rushed back to print. The new series from writer Stephanie Phillips, artist Evgeniy Bornyakov, colorist Lauren Affe, and letterer Troy Peteri, is the latest AfterShock debut to sell out, joining Dark Red #1 and Orphan Age #1. Here’s the write-up from the publisher:
Conspiracy theories, government corruption, and a really good mix of Prince drives David Corey to help solve the mysterious disappearance of a famous politician’s son. When David realizes that the truth is much more dangerous than a kidnapping, he must battle ancient secrets that have endangered the lives of children for centuries. This conspiracy-fueled adventure story looks at the darker side of American history through the eyes of an unlikely team of heroes. If they fail, the American government and its people may not survive.
Descendent #1 – 2nd Printing is due out on June 19th, 2019.
