Brian Michael Bendis is easily one of the most talented writers in the comics industry these days. His dialogue for Spider-Man in New Avengers is the best web head in comics currently. Sure, some of you like what happened to Spider-Man post Straczynski, but thatâ€™s another discussion. Bendis is also one of the most spread thin in the industry and as good as he is, his stories often suffer from bloat and padding in order to allow him to keep up his projects. Some of that padding may be due to the work heâ€™s been quietly doing with artist Michael Avon Oeming on his first all-ages graphic novel titled Takio.
The graphic novel follows the multiracial sisters in an adoptive family who are set on driving each other to the brink of insanity. After a â€œonce in a lifetime accidentâ€ the two sisters develop super powers bringing them together as the worldâ€™s first super heroes.
Check out a preview of Takio here below.
â€œAs exciting as it was to stretch my writing muscles and help create this new modern all ages superhero world, I am most excited for people to see a new side to the entire Powers crew,â€ explains writer Brian Michael Bendis. â€œThis book is so good looking.â€
Artist Michael Oeming adds, “This has been an exciting adventure for me, drawing and creating with my extended family has added a whole new dimension to our work. One of the best times I’ve ever had making comics.”
Takio hits stores March 2, 2011. Check out this early look at the graphic novel.
