Out now from Sam Johnson and Mike Gagnon is the prequel to the hit comic from last month The Almighties.
Whilst the first issue threw us right into the action of the group, this 7 page prequel comic gives us a bit more insight into the lives of the characters before they were the team as we know them now. It may seem strange to have produced such a short comic to give so much information to the readers, but Johnson and Gagnon manage to do it with the same style, flair and humour found in the first issue.
The highlights of the comic include a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it reference to An American Werewolf in London in the origin story for Phineus Clayworth, fingers crossed you’ll know what I am talking about when you read the issue; and a rather brilliant use of The A-Team introduction.
It seems that both Johnson and Gagnon, who have both written stories for this issue, are having a great time and a lot of fun making this comic and it really shows! The pair are really a talent to look out for and I can’t wait to see the rest of their story.
