Captain Gravity’s love for the bottle has gotten him plastered to the floor.
It was a love so great that it cost him his career as a superhero and if he’s not careful, will cost him even more.
Now Ethan Falls has not only lost his ability to put on the tights and cape, but has sunk so low that he’s masterminding bank robberies in order to dupe his wife and young sons into thinking he could be holding down a full-time job instead of crawling in and out of a bar every day.
Worst of all, someone has found out his secret and wants a piece of the action.
Writers Howard Wong and Jim Valentino, along with artist Marco Rudy, have crafted a gripping examination of alcoholism and its effects with a story that finds out just how far the mighty can fall.
