      Elite #1 is the first issue of a new series from Portent Comics written by James Redington and pencilled by Marcelo Salaza. The plot centres around the character of the title’s namesake who, in true Superman style is a hero idolised by all. However, not is all as it appears to be, since our hero is a rather reluctant one flung from being an average joe to a crime fighting force to be reckoned with! - Or not.

      This comic shoes us just how hard it is to be heroic. I am personally a


      big fan of Portent.

      I enjoy every issue of their comics that I purchase, and even have a fluffy duck representing Ducky of Rob & Ducky fame. This title, although perhaps not their best, is no different.

      The pencils are playful and unique, with a rather ’squared’ feel that I have come to expect from Portent title that makes it rather stylised and different from other comics. The plot, although a little difficult to follow at first is enjoyable and well scripted.

      It has subtle humour and even subtler homages to DC’s famous Superman ...


      • title, which will make every comic geek happy. The lettering looks odd, and takes a while to get used to but it is all part of the overall style of the title.

        The colours, however, are what really stood out for me. Every page is full of detail and the variety of colours used really brings the comic to life, fitting the pencils like a glove.

        The inks also accompany the pencils rather well, being simplistic enough to keep with the style and feel of the comic, but detailed enough to give the pencils

        an extra push up the scale. The thing that I love the most about this title, however, is how traditional the story is, bringing us back to the early years of Marvel and DC, when children and adults alike could enjoy a good read, where the superhero had a secret identity that meant something and the stories had heart.

        Overall, that is what this comic is all about - heart. If you are looking for a comic that has a truly traditional look and feel, with likeable characters and that is just plain, old good fun, this is for you.

        Issues #1 and #2 are available now.
