Acclaimed writer J. Michael Straczynski returns the prescient, ambitious world of The Resistance! In the wake of the assassination of their leader, the Resistance is in disarray, disconnected from each other and hunted by authorities around the world - including an army of "reborns" recruited by the American government. To avert decimation at the hands of a fascistic government crackdown, the Resistance must discover the ace up their sleeve, and then the key to unlocking it.

    Last years The Resistance did an excellent job of introducing Straczynski’s superhero universe, and this first issue really begins to develop the characters and the story, still keeping the global stakes but making the stories feel more personal. One of AWA’s flagship stories, with such an excellent creative team and the scope for some truly epic stories amongst the excellent worldbuilding, readers owe it to themselves to pick this comic up.

    On the surface, Uprising #1 can almost be overly dense but as you dig further in, you uncover a thought-provoking tale that starts to bend the stereotypical super powers-against-the-government storyline. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Elias Rosner Apr 12, 2021

    A worthy continuation of the story of volume one and the strength of the story ups the score but the art is lacking in character clarity and facial expressiveness. Here's hoping that it's fixed in future issues. Read Full Review
