Project Superpowers #0, formerly known as Superpowers comes out this week with the first issue, running a little late due to re-naming the title we think. From the creative team that brought you the twelve part series Justice; Alex Ross and Jim Krueger presents a tale that features superheroes from WWII that now find themselves in the present time.
From the dawn of the 20th Century came a new chapter in mankind's history, unleashed during a time of great war and destruction. It was the beginning of the Age of the SUPERPOWERS, yet with the closing of the Second World War, this new spark seemingly flickered and died. Until now... Now the story can be told of the great lost SUPERPOWERS -- men and women with incredible abilities who changed the course of mankind forever... and who had been thought lost ... Until now... Now, DYNAMITE ENTERTAINMENT and Alex Ross unleash the SUPERPOWERS! This explosive #0 issue features a story crafted by Justice collaborators Alex Ross and Jim Kruger, joined by artists Stephen Sadowksi, Doug Klauba and additional art by Alex Ross. The story of SUPERPOWERS begins here, in the present day with the Fighting Yank, coming to terms with the ghosts of his past and present! As our story unfolds, we journey to the heights and depths of the Second World War and come face-to-face with the great forgotten heroes of the ages, and solve the mystery of where these legends disappeared to after the great war. This is THE event of 2007, and it leads directly into the SUPERPOWERS series! Issue #0 is where it all begins and features 28 pages of story and art PLUS a full SUPERPOWERS color sketchbook by Ross and original Ross interconnecting covers - all for just a buck!

Mankind's two ultimate nightmares come together in mortal combat, and whoever wins-we lose. On the remote planet Ryushi, a small ranching community becomes an unwilling participant in a deadly ritual: extraterrestrial Predators have seeded Ryushi with Alien eggs in order to create the ultimate hunt. But what the Predators don't know is that an Alien queen egg is amongst those they've sent as potential hunting stock, and when the Predators arrive, the hunters become the hunted amidst a monumental swarm of Aliens, and they may need to turn to the very same humans they regard as little more than potential trophies to give them any hope of survival. Aliens vs. Predator Omnibus Volume One packs over 400 pages of excitement and terror into one package, offering the original smash-hit AVP comics series that launched the franchise, plus the exciting continuation of the storyline previously published as AVP: War.
