Take a thrilling ride across the multiverse with Commander Nick Morgan and his doppelganger Nicholas! Commander Morgan's government, known as The Ascendancy, has attached and enslaved eleven other Earths and has its sights set on our world as their next target. Nick spent his childhood secretly learning the freedom in other Americas from his grandfather, Tobias Morgan, and struggles to fulfill the deadly goals of his leaders. Now, after stealing an advanced vehicle prototype and his A.I. companion Atlas, Nick seeks out the leaders of a former rebellion known as The Futurists (led by a parallel version of Dr. Carl Sagan) for their assistance in assembling a legendary weapon that could stop the Ascendancy forever!

    With 36 pages of ad-free story, Parallel Man #1 was a "meaty" debut issue that provided enough set-up, story, and a suitable cliffhanger to clearly dive into the next issue. I loved the small taste of alternate worlds that were shown this issue and I hope to see many more as Morris and Haugen continue to flesh out their characters and ideas. It's not always easy to hook me with a first issue, but the creative team found the perfect balance between action, exposition and intrigue here that has me definitely planning to return for next issue.

    Parallel Man #1 is a very fun story that provides a rich combination of adventure and intrigue. There were definitely some setbacks in the beginning with the artwork and writing not matching up, but once Morris and Haugen introduce Agent Morgan the book hits its stride with fantastic dimensions and engaging dialogue.

    There is a lot of promise for this new series. In a list of story elements, Parallel Man sounds like a must read. In execution, the first issue falls short of what it sets out to be. Hopefully as the series progresses, the creative team can smooth out some of these initial bumps. Read Full Review
