The Descendants is styled after works from the Bronze Age of Comic Books, a time before superhero comics were dominated by grim and gritty deconstructions; when comic books were fun. It is presented in a unique manner: as an all-prose comic book complete with issues, specials and annuals. Each tells a complete story that ties into the overall tale of the titular superheroes.
In the first exciting volume: Three friends discover the their old school, The Psionics Training and Application Academy is actually a front for a clandestine organization dedicated to exploiting young people with powers rather than helping them. They band together, managing to rescue a small group of such people, bringing them to Mayfield, VA for safekeeping.
Unfortunately, fate puts them in harm’s way from new and dangerous sources beyond what they were already facing; from a resurrected sorceress, to the local crime boss, and a mad-woman with powered armor and a robot army! If our heroes want to live, they’ll have to learn to come together as a super-team and as a family.
They are heroes. They are people. This is their story.
