Genius #1
STORY BY: Adam Freeman, Marc Bernardin
ART BY: Afua Richardson
LETTERS BY: Troy Peteri
COVER BY: Afua Richardson
PUBLISHER: Top Cow Productions












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.

In case you didn’t know, Genius will be returning in 2016 with Marc Bernardin and Adam Freeman. Unfortunately, Afua Richardson will not be the artist on this project, BUT I have it on good authority that there will be a black comic artist on this project. Stay tuned for more info.
