Top Cow Announces Genius, a Five-Issue Miniseries From Alphas Writer Bernardin


Top Cow on Friday announced Genius, a weekly, five-issue miniseries set to roll out through August from writers Marc Bernardin and Adam Freeman, artist Afua Richardson, and Top Cow's Minotaur Press. Described as "A harrowing, action-packed tale of a city that declares war on a brilliant young woman pushed to the edge," Genius asks, "What if the greatest military mind of our generation was born to a people who are already supremely conditioned to wage war, who know nothing but violence since birth, and must continually adapt to new predators in order to survive? What if the second coming of Alexander the Great, of Genghis Khan, of Napoleon, of Patton...what if it was a teenaged girl from South Central, L.A. named Destiny? And what if she decides to secede three blocks of the 'hood from the Union? Who is going to take it back from her and her army of gangbangers? Who CAN?" "We're thrilled to be part of Image's roster of the new and different," said Bernardin, whose credits include Syfy's Alphas starring Godzilla's David Strathairn. "This story—about an urban revolutionary's war on systemic injustice—is one Adam and I have been wanting to tell for a very long time." All five issues of Genius will be available weekly, throughout August. The first issue will be released on August 6 and each single issue will retail for $3.99.
