This September, Dan DiDio and Keith Giffen reunite for O.M.A.C. This new series tells the story of Kevin Kho’s transformation into a One Machine Army Corp, an unwilling participant in a brutal war. NEWSARAMA and COMIC BOOK RESOURCES have the first interviews about the book.
So who is this new character, Kevin Kho, and what can we expect from his story?
“It's really about a person who lives his life under a lot of control and is used to being able to have things in a very orderly fashion. Enter into his life ‘OMAC’ and the events that occur, and basically, he loses control of his own life. A lot of the story is about his struggle to regain control, to re-establish himself as an individual again, as other events are pressing against him,” DiDio told COMIC BOOK RESOURCES.
“The first issue introduces O.M.A.C. and the circumstances he's in now. But we'll get some flashbacks to his life before he was O.M.A.C. in the first issue, and you'll see that there's nothing about this guy that makes you think he's going to be a superhero. He's just an ordinary guy named Kevin Kho. He's an adopted Cambodian orphan, but he's not a black-belt or anything like that,” Giffen said to NEWSARAMA.
