Official Press Release
The most popular super hero crime comic of the decade returns in November with Powers #1, from the award-winning team of Brian Michael Bendis & Michael Oeming! Lauded by fans and critics alike, Powers has emerged as one of the most successful creator owned comics of our time and begins an all-new chapter perfect for readers new and old. Homicide detectives Christian Walker and Enki Sunrise investigate murders specific to super hero cases. Shipping monthly—yeah, you heard us—Powers returns not only with your favorite detectives, but also with the letter column you have to read to believe!
While developing and producing the live action Powers TV show for FX, Brian Bendis and Powers will appear on Howard Stern’s Geek Time, Saturday October 17th. This follows the selection of Powers: Who Killed Retro Girl? as the first pick of the month on Geek Time. Plus, don’t miss Bendis on G4’s Fresh Ink, Attack of The Show and more major media outlets, spreading the word about Powers!
“Powers is one of the most important books of my life,” said Bendis. “Mike and I have dedicated so much blood sweat and tears to it, and to think our baby just turned ten ears old seems crazy to me. If you dig my stuff on spider-woman, daredevil, or alis, you will love powers. And that’s a promise.”
