What happens when magic gives humanity superpowers? Chaos. In this cultural and socially relevant story, meet American tall-tale legend, John Henry, in a universe-wide event that will take our world from normal to paranormal in this jam-packed, 21-page introduction to the beginning of the Arclight Universe.
John Henry—the man, the myth, the American tall-tale—rises to a new mythology in this action-packed, 21 page issue that recreates the African-American legend into an icon in the Arclight Universe.
I don’t face harassment, I don’t leave my house fearing for my life, and I don’t have the problems that marginalized groups have to live with every day, but I think my privilege actually spins this tale into a message that can be used as a teaching moment for people who don’t understand what being in the minority is like.

…to create worlds like these, it takes a great amount of imagination, hard work and originality…that is what I think of when I read The Passing, as what this creative team does, more than shifts the paradigm, it changes the game.
…a commanding first issue, which grabs the reader with familiar world-building and adds more depth where it would have been a rewriting of legends. The story by Edward Williams is brilliant, insightful and engages the reader like few have done before. The art by Miguel Angel Ruiz is luminous and gorgeous.
