Much like Prophet, this is one of Image's relaunches of a crappy Liefeld-ian character from the '90s.

Haven't read it, but I love that the company are basically taking their crappy old characters and trying to redeem them, instead of pretending they never happened.

Marvel and Dc could learn a lesson there, I think.

I'm sure it'd be fun, but I have so many books on my plate as it is.

I'll mentally file it away in the "great comics you haven't read yet, but totally should" cabinet, along with Maus and Cerebus.

She looks a lot like Black Widow or rather Scar Jo's rendition of her.

She's Warren Ellis' Parallel World-hopping adventurer. He writes it for Avatar Press:

From Wiki:
Anna Mercury is a leather-clad, red-headed hero who travels between parallel worlds, fighting to keep advanced weaponry from being used by more primitive worlds.
On Earth, in the modern day United Kingdom, Anna Mercury is actually Anna Louise Britton, an agent of the government, tasked with missions in the nine parallel worlds adjacent to our own. Anna's travels through the space between worlds charges her equipment that lets her defy gravity, move through solid objects, and perform other feats, though the energy is limited and must be monitored closely.


I read the first run a while ago. It's pretty fun.

I've never read this, and know practically nothing about it, but last year I wrote a 20-page treatment for a comic book series (complete with concept art) AND a finished first script that I was gonna submit to Image and Dark Horse...

The name of this series was X, and the main character had an X where his face should be. That's where it seems the similarities stop, but still... weird.

And when I say "weird", obviously what I actually mean is "incredibly frustrating"

Totally!

Me and my bloody-minded clone army of lawyers should lay waste to Dark Horse. Cities shall tremble and the very sky itself shall turn Eggshell White with legal documents!

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:


Or I'll just shake it off and hand it in to Image maybe... y'know, whatever's easier...

Yeah, f**k it dude.

Mark Millar stole my idea of making Valaria Richards super smart. Don't see me getting my panties in a bunch.....but if I ever see his ass on the street he's a corpse.

All I've heard of this guy is from the t.v. show & his unreal inventions he made to escape from traps etc. Pretty entertaining show. LOL
