    The Super Powered Fancast

    The Story: As a fan of the original Prodigy series, I am excited about this follow up and how Millar has elevated and evolved the story and the character. The story has a great build up and all of the character moments add to the drama, tension and mystique of the character. I love the challenge that Edison is facing and looking forward to big this adventure gets. The Art: Buffagni delivers some beautifully detailed art throughout the issue. I love the way the panels are intercut and how they come together to craft a unique and interesting look into the character’s life.

    But Why Tho?

    Prodigy: The Icarus Society #1features the return of Edison Crane, with a story that rivals and even exceeds some of the biggest action movies ever put to the screen. Though Millar has had a career with mixed results, the Prodigy series is one of his most interesting creations and well worth a read.
