They survived an evil sorceress. They stood up to an organization bent on experimenting on them. They even weathered their own, internal storms.
Now the Descendants must face a new challenge: living their lives. From reconnecting with their families and mentors, to delving into romance, they're about to learn that there's more to being superheroes than squaring off against bad guys.
Of course, while they try tending to their personal lives, evil isn't lying idle. They face new baddies in the form of New York's Tongs, extra-dimensional monsters and... cyborg nerds?
They are heroes. They are people. This is their story.
Styled after works from the Bronze Age of Comic Books, The Descendants is presented in a unique manner: as an all-prose comic book complete with issues, specials and annuals, each telling a complete story that ties into the overall tale of the titular superheroes.
It is also written as a throwback and love letter to an earlier age of superheroes, to a time before everything was grim and gritty and when comic books were fun.
Collects Issues #13-20 of the web serial The Descendants by Landon Porter. Start from the very beginning with We Could Be Heroes (Descendants Basic Collection, #1)
