New Release for the week of January 20th, 2021
ABBOTT 1973 #1
Detroit’s hardest hitting journalist, Elena Abbott, is trying to make a fresh start at a new newspaper… but her deadly past isn’t ready to let go. The city is days away from the historic election of a Black candidate as their new Mayor, but a vicious new group has emerged to destroy him, targeting anyone who supports his campaign or the change he represents. That means Abbott, who discovers the group’s connection to a dangerous dark magic, has been targeted for certain death — unless she embraces her true power as the Lightbringer to save her city.
