J.G. Jones (52, Wanted) and Mark Waid (Irredeemable, Superman: Birthright, Kingdom Come) weave a powerful, literary, fully-painted piece of historical fiction that examines the heroic myth while exploring themes of racism, cultural legacy, and human nature.
During the Great Flood of 1927 in Chatterlee, Mississippi, the River is rising as fast as the racial and social tensions in town. But when an otherworldly being falls from the sky and challenges everything these divided people knew, it changes things . . . forever.
Includes a foreword by renowned film critic Elvis Mitchell.
