With her nemesis, Matter Man, finally under control, Chalice begins a new chapter of her life as spokeswoman and primary recruiter for the Gateway Army. Sensing that time is running out on the safety of the world's newest Alter, Chalice expands her search. But as she closes in, new complications arise: Chalice finds herself juggling impossible responsibilities to her family, her Alters family, and an impoverished, now-homeless family she barely even knows. As past guilts intensify, she must stand fast against the pressure of her new responsibilities, or be consumed. From Paul Jenkins (Wolverine: Origin, Sentry) and Leila Leiz (NVRLND) comes the groundbreaking series that HAD to be told at AFTERSHOCK. 'The visuals are beautiful and deserve attention, while the story looks to be addressing something avoided in American society. Overall grade: A.' - Patrick Hayes of SciFi Pulse
