It’s the dream of every comic fan: what if the heroes are real?
On the flip side: what if the villains are, too?
That’s just what Danny, the protagonist of Albion, is trying to figure out. With the help of the mysterious Penny, Danny begins to realize that the greatest comic book characters of all time may have been based on the exploits of real men and women. But finding out where these people are and why the big cover up — well, that’ll take five more issues to tell.
Based on a plot by comic master Alan Moore, with a script by his daughter Leah along with John Reppion and art by Shane Oakley and George Freeman, Albion gets off to decent start and has the look of solid series.
