After Dark 1 (July 2010)

Wesley Snipes helped create After Dark. There’s no mention of if he did it before or after debtor’s prison. I imagine if the comic had a tax evader as a character, it might be a lot more interesting. The story, if I can figure it out, is about an atmosphere destroyed earth with no real sunlight (Snipes apparently saw the Matrix) and the people in power decide to send a mission out to find a cultural icon to inspire the masses. Unfortunately, it’s not Elvis.

A really lame team assembles and there’s eventually some dramatics, et cetera.

It’s basically like every other lame sci-fi story. I read it because of Peter Milligan, who doesn’t necessary do crappy work for hire. His writing here is terrible, so I guess you’ll have to trust me on that last statement.

There’s not much he can do with this awful, unintelligible art.

Simply dreadful.
