Month of African-American Comics: Heroes of the World - Legend of the Earth Conduit #1

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 Heroes of the World - Legend of the Earth Conduit #1 from Vincent M. Galvez (writer), Joe Bonsu (artist) and Mark Williams (colorist)...

This series is about a young hero named Oreh Gaia, who is training to be one of the, you know, heroes of the world. The concept is introduced in a series of full-page spreads with a TON of heroes by Bonsu and Williams...

Oreh is not a great student as a superhero, but finally manages to eke his way into probationary stasis where he is being trained by a big-time superhero. He picks a good time to do so, because the vast criminal conspiracy that was gone underground for a long time has come back in a BIG way and they are now more powerful than ever! Luckily for everyone involved, Oreh has mysterious powers that kicked in at JUST the right time...

This is a compelling first issue by Galvez setting up the heroes of the world. Oreh is an interesting lead.

You can check out the website for the series here.
