20 years in the making, now issue #2 is available, here are my thoughts on Section 12 (Flashback) from Lenovations Press.
Section 12 is an independent comic series from the 1990s has returned after over 20 years of silence. Before the Conspiracy Theory, before the X-Files, there was the Section 12 comic series. Section 12 is a government run project designed to keep scientific failures from the public eye. This is super hero action and adventure done in the classic Silver-Age style.Len Mihalovich, Phil Miller, Michael Kelleher, Josh C Lyman & Lawrence Guerreo
In Section 12 (Flashback) #2 – We see the team on their first mission as they race to Phoenix to investigate a warp in time in our story titled “Opening Day”.
After the previous issues introduction, we get a bit more about the team. There are some interesting strengths and weaknesses here.
First there is the final addition to the team – the way of recapturing him was very well done, and works well with the makeup of the team. Then they are off to their first official mission.
The set up for the mission is well done, with a couple of threats (and a third for the future). I like the addition of the characters here, and I wonder if the journalist will be a repeating character – it would make an interesting side story.
The battle scenes are well done too – I like the greenness of the attack. They all have their own powers, but there are problems too. The water, and the enthusiasm too. I like that they haven’t had a chance to train together and work with the new weapons.
I love the feel of these stories. There is a classic feel, without it feeling too hokey. I did always enjoy The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and the like, and this feels like this.
The art is good fun too, especially with the action scenes – a little bloody at the end.
