by About Comics About Comics will release DNAgents Volume 1.
Created by Mark Evanier and Will Meugniot, and featuring inking by Al Gordon, the DNAgents are a group of super-powered synthetic humans, manufactured and owned by Matrix Incorporated. They are given the powers of gods, the bodies and knowledge of teenagers, and the experience and wisdom of newborn babes.
There's Surge, the handsome group leader with electrical powers; Sham, who can make himself look like anybody but feels like a nobody; Amber, the spunky lass who flies magnetically; Tank, inhumanly broad and strong and quite humanly attractive to women; and last but not least Rainbow, the sexy siren with a psychic brain beneath her multi-colored hair.
"This is a great time for this," Evanier said. "When Will and I started this book, we had to explain to people about DNA and genetic engineering. Now that they're cloning sheep and monkeys and Olsen twins, our little narrative looks like it's right around the corner."
"The DNAgents is filled with strong traditional superhero action and classic teen hero themes," said Nat Gertler, publisher of About Comics. "They have struggles of conscience, as theyıre faced with orders from their creator that conflict with their own evolving morality."
This is the first time DNAgents has been put in trade paperback. It's being issued in the About Comics Reader format, a compact black and white format. Volume 1 has all the stories from the first six issues, more than 160 pages with a new cover by Meugniot and an afterword by Evanier.
