New Issue Preview – HERO WORSHIP #1

We are proud to share the preview for Hero Worship #1, a new comic miniseries written by Zak Penn and Scott Murphy, featuring artwork by Michael DiPascale. Zak Penn, as you may know from our previous coverage, is Hollywood’s premiere screenwriter for Marvel superheroes, with five Marvel film scripts under his belt: X2, Elektra, X-Men: The Last Stand, The Incredible Hulk, and The Avengers. Scott Murphy is one of the key writers on Cartoon Network’s Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and Michael DiPascale is one of Avatar’s (and sister company Boundless Comics’) go-to cover artists for such titles as Crossed, Night of the Living Dead, Lady Death, and War Goddess.

Hero Worship takes place in an America fascinated by its single superhuman, the ultimate celebrity known as Zenith. Crowds show up in the thousands whenever a disaster takes place, eager to see him in action (and sometimes putting themselves in danger just for a glimpse). For the young man named Adam, Zenith is a bit of an obsession — he idolizes and constantly thinks about Zenith in the way that other people might devote themselves to a rock band, a sports athlete, or a television show. So what happens when one day, Adam himself begins to develop powers of his own? When he’s become the very thing he once revered? Adam discovers that Zenith’s existence is not anything like he once dreamed — it’s a dangerous new landscape of manipulation and media, marketing and mania.

Enjoy our nine-page preview below!
