The man formerly known as Captain Gravity is feeling some pretty immense pressure.
Ethan Falls has a drinking problem — one so bad that it got him kicked off the prestigious United Heroes and has now led him to a life of crime.
Making matters worse is that Ethan is lying to his wife and two young kids about how he’s coming by the money he’s stealing by using his gravity powers and a powerful crime family is now manipulating him down a even darker path.
It won’t be long before his former teammates will confront him about his actions, the criminals will push him into something he can’t walk away from and his family will discover his charade.
Is there any way out other than a bottle?
This brief but insightful look at the high price of addiction, written by Howard Wong and Jim Valentino and drawn by Marco Rudy and Manny Trembley, is an emotional roller-coaster that is sure to tug at your heartstrings.
