Another body. Another dead-end lead. The investigation into the killer ripping through Burns, Alaska, spirals further into chaos – as money, mysticism and monsters make it impossible to find the truth. And the truth is even murkier around the one man – one monster – who sits at the center of it all.

Review: Prodigy #1

prodigy-1-of-6_728876a2a3

Edison Crane’s not content being the world’s smartest man and most successful businessman—his brilliant mind needs to be constantly challenged. He’s a Nobel Prize-winning scientist, genius composer, Olympic athlete, an expert in the occult, and now international governments are calling on him to fix problems they just can’t handle.

Prodigy #1 is an entertaining beginning to a new series from the man behind Kick-AssSuperman: Red Son, and so much more. In this first issue we meet Edison Crane who is burdened with a prodigious mind from birth. This is emphasized over and over as we see him devouring knowledge from an early age well in to his adulthood where he runs his own company while performing ludicrous stunts. But that combination isn’t weird enough, writer Mark Millar takes us further with alien incursions and the possibility of an asteroid hitting Earth. There’s just a lot here and Millar delivers it with his usual style and flair.

The artwork by Rafael Albuquerque is impressive. It effortlessly showcases both Edison’s youth and adulthood taking us through so many different and varied situations, each telling us a story. It brilliantly demonstrates Edison’s massive learning curve over everyone else on the planet. In addition to showing some brief but impressive fight scenes early in the issue. The art has it all and it’s great to see Albuquerque deliver his amazing style to this series.

The first issue plants a flag as to who Edison Crane is and what we should expect. It has a solid set-up and a cinematic flair about it all.
