Who here hasn’t dreamed of having a superpower? Even if you won’t admit it, everyone wishes that could do something so unique and spectacular that it would set them apart from the average human. Now what if you could have a power, randomly chosen, would you do it? What if the downside is that you would only have six months to live? Not so enthusiastic about it now, are you? Well, that’s the premise to Death Sentence #1. Because of a new virus, called G-Plus, random individuals have been given a power that is slowly killing them.
Our story focuses on a few seemingly unrelated people who have all been recently diagnosed with the virus. We start off with Verity, an introverted graphic artist who is being given the diagnosis on the first page of the comic. We move quickly on to Weasel, a not-so-talented rock star who has a habit of wearing a flying helmet and goggles regardless of the activity involved. He’s also a bit preoccupied with having random sex with his groupies. Lastly, we have Monty. He seems a bit narcissistic but more crowd focused in that he plays to them in everything he does.
In preparation for his highly anticipated upcoming series, Mark Millar will be providing an exclusive prequel to Supercrooks in the March issue of CLiNT Magazine.
The prequel, penned by Millar, will run as an in-continuity beginning to the series and should be read before starting Supercrooks as it’s critical to the upcoming series, and you won’t be able to read it anywhere else other than CLiNT.
