EXCELLENCE IS REAL.
EXCELLENCE is also the title of Skybound’s newest comic, created by Khary Randolph and Brandon Thomas. Brandon and Khary are longtime Skybound family, joined here by colorist Emilio Lopez and letterer Deron Bennett. To work with them again was a given; to do it all together on an action-packed comic about a secret society of magicians that channels Kendrick Lamar and Street Fighter and Black Panther (Priest AND Coogler)? Shut up and take my money.
At the center of this series is Spencer Dales, a young man about the join the Aegis—the magical Illuminati that guides the world with unseen hands. Cause you know real bad boys move in silence. Spencer’s bloodline is blessed with unimaginable power, a responsibility that his father reminds him of every day. It’s a legacy that’s hard to live up to, even more so when Spencer discovers the flaws in the Aegis’s design.
Because with enough power to change the world, who decides what’s right? And who is deserving? How would YOU use it?
Maybe power is just an illusion. But excellence? It’s very, very real.
