21st Centurions GN In Stores by Mark Heike

21st Centurions GN back coverThe 21st Centurions: New Clear Day color graphic novel has shipped from Diamond Distribution, and can be found in comic shops right now. Why is it worth checking out? Well, online columnist and writer Eric Lindberg had this to say about the 21st Centurions : “This series has a number of innovative and quirky elements that make this comic stand out from the numerous ‘heroes-in-training’ series we’ve seen before, mixing naive heroes with an enigmatic mentor who has questionable motives. The 21st Centurions project is designed to create the new superheroes of tomorrow, taking ordinary but dedicated young people and granting them artificial powers via small wristwatch devices that temporarily channel any superhuman ability, as long as it doesn’t ‘tap out’ their power reserves. This gimmick, along with Tribune’s somewhat pompous and vain focus on photo ops and team merchandising, drives home the ‘anyone can be a star’ vibe of a post-American Idol world.” New Clear Day collects issues 0, 1 & 2 of the series, written and illustrated by Stephanie Heike. If your local retailer is sold out, be sure to place a reorder. Simply tell your shop owner you want a copy of theĀ  21st Centurions: New Clear Day graphic novel, DVD product #SEP110963, from the October, 2011 issue of Diamond Previews.

    Hey Fans! Do yourself a favor and pick this one up. The story is fun and fast paced without losing track and the villains are fresh and unique. Plus there is a lot of “girl” art in it!

    This title is really worth a read. For my money it does the best job of all the currently available comic in depicting how “actual Superheros” would operate in a “just like ours’/”real world”setting The story gives a quietly plausible answer to that question as well as introducing a whole ton of interesting and engaging characters (Heroes we ‘re not quite sure about,Villains who seem to be sympathetic) that we come to care about, in a story that truly does stay on track ,and leaves wanting to know “what happens next”
    The art is excellent,(Prime G.G.A.)with areal sense of dynamism throughout.

    Also wanted to add that the story features several little fun details including the Province of Alberta license plates (GTO CAT)on the criminal Robo Cars, which I think adds to the over-all reading experience.

    Got my copy in the mail yesterday in my monthly shipment of new comics. Looks very pretty in a nice big graphic novel format.

    Congrats to Stephanie on getting this collection together. Hope it draws some new fans, too.
