Xombi - The School of Anguish
Ken (LostPhrack) H. at Sequential Ink continues his insightful overview of the original Xombi series published by Milestone Media in the mid-1990s. This is an excellent way for old readers to refresh their memories of what happened in the original series, as well as a great way for new readers to get a sense of what happened in the series they missed before tackling Xombi #1 on March 16.
Of course, the new Xombi series is designed so that no familiarity with the old one is necessary, but reading what came before may add to your appreciation of what's to come.
Ken tackles the second story arc, The School of Anguish which ran from issues #7-11 and concluded in issue #0 (which was actually the first issue of Xombi published). This storyline featured one of my most popular creations, Manuel Dexterity, who can be seen battling David Kim on the cover above.
Ken's look at the first storyline, Silent Cathedrals, which ran in issues #1-6 can be found here.
Stay tuned for more.
