Free comic book to promote thriller POWERS
Thriller writer John B. Olson has created a free comic book to promote his brand-new novel, Powers. (No relation to the superhero procedural by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming.)
Powers introduces a sheltered Gypsy girl named Mariutza. Her grandfather utters a mysterious last request before dying in her arms after being shot by ten cloaked men. Those same men die before her eyes, but strange powers continue to pursue Mari through the swamps of southern Louisiana. Soon she is on the run from helicopters, soldiers, government agents, and the police. Mari’s only hope of survival is to find Jaazaniah the Prophet, the mythical hero of her grandfather’s bedtime stories ...
