Review: Heroes: Godsend #1

Heroes_Godsend1_Cover_B - Photo CoverThis 5-part story arc focuses on Farah from Heroes Reborn, delving into her past as we find out how she became the woman she is today. The story begins while Farah is a student in New York City in 2001 and terrorists destroy the World Trade Center… Life for the world and Farah will never be the same again… And how will she cope with discovering her camouflage powers?

This literally starts out with a bang, as a defining moment in American history happens. Of course this is more of a backstory themed issue, as we find out more about Farah’s backstory. While the power may seem like a blessing, she is gains attention of Primatech Paper? With that attention they manage to bring in Noah Bennett, and Angela Pertalli, two key characters from both the original Heroes and Heroes Reborn.

Like the previous mini-series Heroes: Vengeance the art work is greatly realistic. While the story follows someone a little more ordinary who happens to have a tragic, but trans-formative event happen. The artist clearly understands, and showcases Farah’s change from ordinary to extraordinary. Even the flashbacks to before the tragic event, seem to have a sense of weight in both art and story. Can’t wait for more.
