Something of myth and legend that was mentioned in hush tones by nearly every ancient culture- Giants, huge creatures from another time, are awakened from their slumber and seek to resume their conquest that has been delayed for a millennium as they lay buried within the earth and California is the first target. To help mount a counter-offensive, the US government creates super humans with an experimental serum. These four super-powered individuals could be the last chance for humanity as they all that stand between the end of civilization and the Giants.

Mindbender, written by James Pruett with art by Federico De Luca, and which has seen sold out of its first two issues, will see the release of issue #3 in July.

For 16 years, Alex hadn’t uttered a solitary word or had a voluntary movement of his own, until now. Those that would use his destructive abilities have been awaiting Alex’s awakening. Now, that wait has ended, and the world will soon learn the true potential of mankind. But will Alex be a vanguard for the world or will he be responsible for its annihilation?
