"ONCE AND FUTURE," Part One
EXTREME'S ORIGINAL WARRIOR GODDESS RETURNS!
After missing for almost a decade, Glory's whereabouts are uncovered by a lone reporter, but the globe-spanning conspiracy keeping her hidden from humanity could make her return more dangerous than anyone ever anticipated! This first issue of an brand-new saga written by Eisner & Harvey-award winner JOE KEATINGE and illustrated by Wet Moon and Shadoweyes creator ROSS CAMPBELL sets up Glory's future by expanding on her past in a way promising to shock long-time fans and excite all-new readers!
By the time the world-famous rip-off machine Rob Liefeld created Glory back in the day, I had already grown too tired of his particular brand of comics to be paying much attention, but the way the character is being handled by Joe Keatinge and Ross Campbell has seriously captured my imagination.
called to mind antagonists-yet-allies relationship that Priest established between T'challa and Iron Man in Black Panther. Like the Panther, Glory serves as an icon, role model and hero for a whole demographic, without really meaning to. It will be interesting to see where they go with that as the series progresses.
