GENIUS: ISSUES 1-5, WEEKLY THROUGHOUT AUGUST The Winner of Top Cow's Pilot Season makes its triumphant return to print! What if the greatest military mind of our generation was born to a people who are already supremely conditioned to wage war, who know nothing but violence since birth, and must continually adapt to new predators in order to survive? What if the second coming of Alexander the Great, of Genghis Khan, of Napoleon, of Patton...what if it was a teenaged girl from South Central, L.A. named Destiny? And what if she decides to secede three blocks of the ‘Hood from the Union? Who is going to take it back from her and her army of gangbangers? Who CAN? From writers MARC BERNARDIN and ADAM FREEMAN (Alphas, X-Men Origins: Nightcrawler, The Authority, The Highwaymen) and rising-star artist AFUA RICHARDSON comes a harrowing, action-packed tale of a city that declares war on a brilliant young woman pushed to the edge.

    Comics: The Gathering - RobertJCross Aug 27, 2014

    If the writing is the brains of the operation, then Richardson's art is the soul and the backbone. Christ almighty, what beautifulspreads that this woman can create. The color, the majesty, the grace, the sexuality. It exudes off the page with every new panel and of course we'll be seeing more of it in other comic runs. Whoever doesn't hire this fine artist is doing themselves a great disservice. I personally can't wait for her return, and anyone who reads this series should definitely feel the same.

    AiPT! - John F. Trent Aug 26, 2014

    Genius #5 is a great conclusion to an intriguing story that had its ups and downs. Richardson's artwork is the best in the series and Bernardin and Freeman threw a number of curveballs keeping the reader guessing until the very end. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Aug 27, 2014

    Genius #5 is what I wanted it to be as the team gave us a final round that fit their arc. Honestly I'd like to see more Destiny, but if this is it then her saga went out on a rather solid note. Recommended. Read Full Review
