Review: The Further Adventures of Nick Wilson #1

For a few years in his early 20s, Nick Wilson had super powers and all the acclaim associated with them. When those powers vanished, so did his fame, sending him from national hero to late-night punchline. By the time we pick up his story, he is not yet 30 and barely an answer in a trivia contest.

Faced with a life in a rear-view mirror full of lost powers, faded glory, former enemies, ex-girlfriends, and forgotten grudges, Nick struggles to figure out who he is today. Packing on an extra 20 pounds and peering through a medicinal marijuana haze, he is trying to build a future when all that’s left is just a man who hasn’t been super for a very long time.

The washed up superhero story has been done many times before. The Further Adventures of Nick Wilson #1 is that type of story, but Eddie Gorodetsky and Marc Andreyko deliver something that’s unique in many ways and stands out. Nick is your uber hero, this world’s Superman, but one day his powers just left him, now, he’s attempting to find his role in the world.

Gorodetsky and Andreyko deliver something different by docusing on the person and not making him too much of a fuck-up. Instead, Nick comes off as a person who just doesn’t have direction now. He’s not someone to feel sorry for, instead it’s someone we can relate to. And, he’s not a shitheel, an easy direction to take him. He turns down an offer of sex. He wants to connect with his ex, to just catch up, and at no point does he show an arrogance or cockiness to make him unlikeable. The character is someone we can relate to and feel sorry for in his sad sack sort of way. In other words, he’s human.

The art by Stephen Sadowski keeps the story from being too depressing with a style that makes the story itself a bit more comedic. While Nick’s life is depressing and sad in many ways, the way the art presents it all, it never comes off that way. It’s an interesting case where the art style really dictates the tone of the story. The character designs too are great where individuals, though stylized, have flaws and look “normal” in many ways. That decision too makes it all the easier to relate to.

I had no idea what to expect going into this first issue and the series as a whole but after reading this first issue I want to see where it all goes. While the overall concept is familiar, what’s delivered is unique and in a way that takes a world would a superhero and grounds it. A sleeper comic a lot of folks might miss and missing out.

Betty and Veronica wake up in a place that seems nice-but something isn’t quite right. Maybe it’s the super-villain costumes they’re wearing. Or maybe it’s the henchmen chasing them and shouting about motorcycles and plants! Meanwhile, Riverdale doesn’t know what to do with certain members of the cheerleading squad. Co-published with Archie Comics.
