Review: Winterman Comics #1
Who doesn’t like to read about new heroes, people that capture our imagination?As most heroes are simply extensions of their creators. As their imaginations lead them to some fun places. Though we have enjoyed the many different created universes throughout comics, it is alarming, the marginalization of POC creators.
The mere absence of the many creators who could have crafted worlds we would have enjoyed for years is simply sad. Even the most well known Black comic book character right now, Black Panther, was created by 2 white creators. As we never saw the mainstream vision of Black heroes by black creators until 1993, when Milestone Comics was founded. Geoff Thorne unleashes a new universe of heroes starting with a fierce water-friendly hero in the first chapter to his book, Winterman Comics.
We are taken to a place called Other Country, where our hero is looking for some R&R. We find her in her natural habitat and spending time with old acquaintances. She finds out that her once peaceful home has come under attack from one of her neighbors forcing her into action and a search for vengeance.
Overall, a great first issue that shows heroes are also needed at home. The story by Thorne is mesmeric. The art by Thorne is graceful. Altogether, a story that boils with excitement.
