BOOM! Studios Breaks Down Vigilante and Villain in Translucid

BOOM! Studios this April debuts Translucid #1, from the writing team of Claudio Sanchez and Chondra Echert, and Daniel BaylissTranslucid is a startling deconstruction of the classic bond between a hero and his villain, and shows what it takes to push a person to take up either mantle.

Translucid is the superhero story you’ve wanted but never thought you’d see. It explores the thin line between heroes and villains, and the space between childhood hope and loss.

The Horse has been the arch-enemy of The Navigator for years. But The Horse feels The Navigator’s moral compass slipping, and even a villain can’t let that happen. The Horse decides to get a closer look into The Navigator’s past that he’s buried deep in his subconscious and find out what drives a person to make the right choice, and what propels someone to make a selfish one. Thus begins an exploration of why a young man would take the mantle of a superhero.

Translucid #1 arrives in comic shops on April 16th.
