Nobody ever said being a teenager was easy...

Just when you thought it was safe to go back to High School...Aspen Comics proudly presents an all-new series created by Michael Turner, Scott Lobdell and David Wohl. HOMECOMING!

Hunter Wilson is just an average American teenager in an average American town, but when the beautiful and amnesiac Celeste arrives in his backyard, Hunter's life will change forever. He discovers that Celeste had disappeared from that very house 10 years earlier, and now she's back with little memory of who she was--but with strange, fantastic abilities and the knowledge that dark forces are rapidly approaching!

Now, Hunter must help Celeste regain her memory while he tries to keep himself and his friends safe--and if that wasn't difficult enough, Homecoming is just a week away and he doesn't have a date to the dance yet!

    While so far there isn't a lot to the title, there looks to be much more on the way, with a cliffhanger first issue and the foreshadowing of a lot more alien interaction up ahead for Celeste, Hunter and the rest of the crew. The artwork is very solid, the writing is funny and entertaining, and the book as a whole has a lot of potential. This may not be the issue to pull readers in and make them believers in the series, sticking with it for a few issues could prove to be a very wise choice. Read Full Review

    This book isn’t perfect, but I surprised me with how entertaining it was. The dialog is one of its strengths for sure and Hunter and Celeste become very likeable characters by the end of it. In a way this book blew me away; mostly because I wasn’t sure what I was going to get and secondly because it was a damn good read. Check it out and don’t let the randomness of the front cover fool you any. Read Full Review

    Sometimes a veteran presence doesn't always equal a good product, and even promising artwork isn't enough to save this one. Homecoming #1 has a good core concept that is, unfortunately, diluted by bad pacing, cookie cutter characters and overwrought narration. Read Full Review
