Brett Booth and Scott Lobdell's New Instagram Comic, A Hero Forged

We mentioned that this was coming, and so it has. A new comic book series by Scott Lobdell and Brett Booth launching for free on Instagram. It's called A Hero Forged and the first issue went up on the Quarancomics channel in time for what would have been Free Comic Book Day. Featuring a muscular shot of our as-yet-unamed hero being forged…

'That man is my prisoner?' I am sure they will fix that for the update. But it suggests that this is more of a supernatural action-adventure than a plain superhero origin story. Agent Ghoul does have a bit of an Amanda Waller vibe, doesn't she?

Comic book creators of A Hero Forged, Scott Lobdell and Brett Booth have a significant shared body of work together. On Teen Titans, on Superman and on Flash Forward for DC Comics as well as the recent Generation Zero epilogue, a longer version of which was planned for today's now-abandoned Free Comic Book Day.
