  • ELECTRIC WARRIORS #1
    written by STEVE ORLANDO
    art and cover by TRAVEL FOREMAN
    variant cover by BENGAL
    A new tale of the future DC Universe, set in a previously unexplored timeline—the Cosmic Dark Age!
    Years after the Great Disaster, the Earth has started to rebuild and rejoin the universal coalition. In order to prevent a galactic war, different worlds throughout the known cosmos have created a new system of competitive combat to give each participating planet their own voice in the intergalactic struggle. Each world has one diplomatic gladiator, chosen to possess the Electric Seed and fight for their homeland as the Electric Warrior! Each fighter forsakes their personal life in the name of peace.
    So what happens when Earth can’t choose a single combatant and sends two instead? The bruiser War Cry represents the humans of Earth, while Deep Dweller, a shape-shifter from the Octopus Tribe, represents the animal kingdom. Can they maintain one common goal, or will they tear Earth’s tenuous coexistence to shreds and destroy the rest of the universe with it? Oh, and War Cry also has a powerful relic from Earth’s past: Superman’s cape!

  • Electric Warriors #1
    Written by Steve Orlando
    Art by Travel Foreman and Hi-Fi
    Lettering by Travis Lanham
    Published by DC Comics
    Review by Richard Gray
    'Rama Rating: 9 out of 10

    If pop culture is destined to eat itself whole, then comic books got to the feeding ground early. Comic books have been remixing and reinventing their own legends for decades, building on the past as a bridge to the future. Which is what makes Steve Orlando and Travel Foreman’s Electric Warriors especially gripping — it views the DC Universe from such a distant vantage point that none of its cows are sacred.

    Orlando and his art team take us deep into the future, a post-disaster Earth of the year 2735 A.D. Having learned nothing from The Hunger Games, wars are averted by a chosen few fighting intergalactic smackdowns. Earth is divided between a dominant animal populace and the humans still struggling for their rights. The Electric Seed has chosen a champion from each side of the gene pool, and not everyone is completely pleased with this.

    What’s fascinating about the complicated and just plain batty setup for Electric Warriors is just how seamlessly it fits into the DCU while completely subverting it. The Age of Heroes is a distant memory, and the products of its time - from Trinity symbols to Kal-El’s cape - have become totemic or simply commonplace. “Superman created a world that told humans they couldn’t take care of themselves,” reflects one character. Here Orlando is starting with the premise that the promise of truth and justice lost out, and stuff just got dark and weird instead. It’s a bold move for a mainstream comic book and a hell of a way to usher in the Cosmic Dark Age.

    Even more intriguing are the characters we are presented with in this debut issue. Oscar Navarro is the human chosen to be the Electric Warrior, but it’s his brother Ian that we spend most of our time getting to know. The reasons for this play out as we get through the non-linear setup, rapidly introducing other characters so we are caught off-guard when something awry is slid into the narrative. Kana, for example, is a member of the Octopus tribes who has been chosen as Earth's second Electric Warrior. Orlando has found a way to present a whole lot of complex world-building at once and never having to rely too heavily on lengthy exposition.

    Much of this is possible thanks to Travel Foreman and Hi-Fi’s (dare I say) electrifying artwork. Split into smaller chapters, the first panel comes flying at the reader jaws-first, setting up the potted history of human-animal relations in a mere four stylishly angled panels. Foreman’s uncomplicated line art on the humans makes the animals and surrounding worlds all the more detailed by comparison. There’s a half-page scene sent on the horizon of something called the Feathered Coast, and its detail looks as though it stretches on for miles.

    Hi-Fi plays the human and alien color art off against each other. The humans are imbued with soft pastels and semi-realistic hues, so much so that the future seems nostalgic. The sudden primary color appearance of Superman’s cape (or the "Shroud of Kal-El," as they call it) visually draws a point of difference between the Cosmic Dark Age and the Age of Heroes. By comparison, the process of Electrogenesis - that is, the transformation into the Electric Warrior - and some of the non-human creatures look as through they are glowing through the panels. As Kana steps out of the water, Hi-Fi has captured every inch of the alienness of the bipedal octopus’ presence.

    “Heroes either make people weaker or die trying,” laments Ian. If comic books and their heroes are to survive the next few decades, let alone the next seven centuries, then there needs to be more books like Electric Warriors. The final page introduces a character so unexpected that’s sublime in its offbeat audacity. It’s a series that has the potential to change the way we look at the DCU, and not just because of it’s ability to mess with canon. Here’s hoping it maintains this level of momentum.

  • Ma si può? :lolle:
    Sapevo che Orlando fosse un fan sfegatato di Morrison, ma ora la cosa comincia a diventare disgustosa!
    Scrive sempre mini che non caga mai nessuno, e poi a sopresa ci ficca un pg creato da Morry.
    In The Unexpected ha riportato in vita Mandrakk, mentre qua vediamo
    Spoiler  :
    un Firestorm, ma che in realtà è solo una fusione tra un Lex Luthor (non so di preciso quale) e il Superman Prime/One Million! :o
    Quello tutto dorato che si vede, per l'appunto, in DC One Million, ma anche All Star Superman, per dire...
    Mmmmaazza e dire che lo volevo vedere pure in DClock, un pg che potrebbe fare il mazzo a Manhattan al 100%. :ahsisi:
    I Know No King But The King In The North, Whose Name Is Stark!
    I Don't Care If He's A Bastard. Ned Stark's Blood Runs Through His Veins.
    He's My King, From This Day, Until His Last Day!

    He Is The White Wolf.
    The King In The North!
