Staff Picks (April): Accel #1

Launching their new superhero universe with Catalyst Prime: The Event in this year’s FCBD, Lion Forge is proud to introduce their resident speedster in Accel #1. After “The Event,” Daniel DosSantos goes from your average gamer with a day job and a girlfriend, to a self-appointed crime fighter breaking the sound barrier in a racing-striped uniform.

The creative team of Joe Casey and Damion Scott perfectly captures the fun of moving faster than a speeding bullet, but it isn’t all “Days of Future Past” Quicksilver-esque pranks. Daniel will have to learn the weight, dare we say the “responsibility,” of donning a suit to fight crime. No matter how fast he runs, he still has to slow down to the usual speed of reality the rest of us live at and deal with the damage sometimes left in the wake of a superhero trying to make a difference.
