Marvel Comics has released a preview of the "Mosaic Prelude" -- a 10-page primer for the publisher's new body-jumping superhero -- which is currently available to purchase for free on Marvel's digital comics store. The "Mosaic Prelude" marks the introduction to the character before his official debut in October's "Mosaic" #1 by Geoffrey Thorne and Khary Randolph.
As revealed in the announcement a couple months back, "Mosaic" follows "the exploits of a man named Morris Sackett. He starts out as a beautiful and successful professional basketball player, a selfish jerk, and - unbeknownst to him - a latent Inhuman," who, upon discovery of his powers, "...finds he no longer has his handsome body. Instead, he's become a free-floating entity that needs to occupy other people's bodies in order to survive."
Take a look at the preview for Marvel's "Mosaic Prelude" below:
