Here we have Super/Spy (Prologue 1&2) by independent comic creators Jon and Jamie Bonjour. It's the year 2043- heroes and villains are common and government control is all but non-existent. We find ourselves at Fortier Academy, "the most prestigious university in the world," where children study in a variety of disciplines from art to hand-to-hand combat.
Warren Douglas needs to focus. His sister, Lucy, needs to pick a major. Their friend Griffin is having trouble with his frequency ray. Costumed super-villain and pyromaniac, Fire-Ant is wreaking havoc on the town. And it's parent's night.
So let's get down to it.
Super/Spy is one of those rare books that grabs you right from the beginning. Let's start with the pacing. The Bonjours pack a LOT of exposition into the prologue but manage to keep the plot and the action moving so that you aren't bogged down in details. There is plenty of action in this orientation.
The art is simple and classic; a throwback to the pulp comics of yore. Bright and bold primary colors are used to full effect and call back memories of the time when comics were lively and fun.
This two-part book is, like I said, merely the prologue. I look forward to the series itself.
