Variant Comics and comiXology Originals are teaming up for Astonishing Times, a new 5-issue comic series that examines the relevance of superheroes in the 21st century. Frank J. Barberie makes his return to creator-owned comics along with the writing debut of Arris Quinones.
Noah Sans is a young reporter at The Sentinel, working in the shadow of his father. He lives in a world full of superheroes – but no one seems to care. After a world-changing event called The Cataclysm, people moved on, and now heroes are old news. But, when Noah begins investigating a mysterious murder, he comes face to face with his most revered heroes and is forced to confront a secret past that could change the world forever.
Astonishing Times features art by Ruari Coleman and color by Lauren Affe with lettering by Taylor Esposito. Astonishing Times will be released monthly beginning July 26, 2021.
