An alien being falls to Earth during the Great Flood of 1927, destined to save a small Mississippi town from certain destruction.
In the small town of Chatterlee, Mississippi, the Great Flood of 1927 was more than just the most catastrophic river flood in the history of the United States. It was the herald of change. While the rising river and broken levees ravaged the former plantation town from the outside, racial and social tensions tore it apart from within. But when an otherworldly being fell from the sky and challenged everything these divided people knew, it changed things . . . forever.
J.G. Jones (52, Wanted) and Mark Waid (Irredeemable, Superman: Birthright, Kingdom Come) weave a powerful, literary, fully-painted piece of historical fiction that examines the heroic myth while exploring themes of racism, cultural legacy, and human nature.
