Oscar-winning screenwriter John Ridley (12 Years a Slave/Creator of TV’s American Crime) is making his highly-anticipated return to comics with THE AMERICAN WAY: THOSE ABOVE AND THOSE BELOW #1, along with artist Georges Jeanty (Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season Eight)!
This series will explore race relations, socioeconomics and the impact of superpowers on average citizens, all set against the backdrop of the 1970s. The story follows Jason Fisher who has seen enough radicals ripping up his city — it's time for them to be stopped. With the country divided, Fisher must step up and fight for the kind of justice he believes in. Can he manage the threats that arise and still maintain his ground?
