Translucid #1

    Translucid » Translucid #1 - Wild Horses released by Boom! Studios on April 2014.

    Short summary describing this issue.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    WHY WE LOVE IT: Claudio Sanchez and Chondra Echert have given us such BOOM! Studios favorites as KILL AUDIO and KEY OF Z. Their latest book takes the superhero trope of “the neverending battle” and turns it into a completely different beast.

    WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: TRANSLUCID is the superhero story you’ve wanted but never thought you’d see. It explores the thin line between heroes and villains, and the space between childhood hope and loss.

    WHAT IT’S ABOUT: The Horse has been the arch-enemy of The Navigator for years. But The Horse feels The Navigator's moral compass slipping, and even a villain can’t let that happen. The Horse decides to get a closer look into The Navigator's past that he's buried deep in his subconscious and find out what drives a person to make the right choice, and what propels someone to make a selfish one. Thus begins an exploration of why a young man would take the mantle of a superhero.

    Horses and WTF? 0

    The GoodI am always open to a new series. I like to support these new projects. I had no idea what the crap Translucid was about. I just thought, hey Boom, why not? So I jumped in only knowing a small piece of this would involve a horse. Boy, did I ever receive a treat! Holy snap. What a piece of work. I have my opinions and ideas of what is going on here and it is genius.The story involves a small child who spends a lot of time by himself. He is a fan of sci-fi and superheroes. This is, to me,...

    Quite a few musicians lately including Tom Morello, Max Bemis, Girard Way, Claudio Sanchez and more have infiltrated comics. I have been a fan of Claudio and his band (Coheed & Cambria) for a really long time. I saw C&C play live at the Metro in Chicago like 7 years ago, and after that, I finally started to get into the comic book universe that Claudio created around this band and all their concept albums. This new series Translucid doesn’t seem to be connected to the other works C...
