Month of African-American Comics: E.P.I.C. #2

All this month I'll be reviewing different comic books by African-American creators, based on submissions from the actual creators of the comic books themselves. Check out the archive to see what books have been spotlighted so far.

Next up is E.P.I.C. (Earth's Protector in Crisis) #2 by Lonnie Lowe Jr. (writer), J.C. Grande (artist, pp 1-20) and Chuck Taylor (artist, pp 21-24)...

The concept of the comic is that a whole pile of people get super powers at once. Some of them decide to use their powers for good...

and some of them use their powers for evil...

The powers were unleashed when a young man named Chris accessed the Alpha Bands, which also give HIM power, as well, and he is thrown into a crazy situation...

Most of the issue is spent on the introduction of the various characters and Lowe does a good job of distilling each character's essence into just a few pages. Grande and Taylor's art is very energetic - the book is very fast-paced and they do well in keeping up with Lowe's story.

You can buy the first two issues at their website here.
