Presenting the first ComiXology comic to refine what has now become known as Guided View Native Digital Comics, a series that utilizes the technology developed to read comic books on your smartphone, tablet, or web browser, while maximizing the story-telling potential of this new medium.
Power Play is about New Yorkers with superpowers, but rather than fight crime, they don makeshift costumes and form an underground streetgames league. From all across the Five Boroughs, competitors come for a chance to claim the League Cup, for fortune, glory, or for the free year of beer at their neighborhood dive bar.
Power Play is a love letter to the diversity of New York City with each character satirizing the stereotypes of the locals, with a wink & a nod to their various neighborhoods. The scenes in the comic are MADEinNY, drawn from photo reference of actual New York locations, monuments, bars, etc. so that you can experience the city first hand, building on those of us who know it well, and introducing it to those who’ve yet to visit.
Drawing inspiration from early Spider-Man, Archie Comics, & Sports Manga, Reilly and Kurt have created a new, accessible, fun comic book story that’s a fresh take on superpowers, mixed with the obstacle courses that only the Greatest City in the World can provide!
