Something dark is coming…
Throughout history, oddities have remained hidden away within the fabric of societies across the planet. However, in recent years these unexplained phenomena have begun to emerge with a vengeance…Enter Gia Sorentino. They thought she was crazy, and locked her away from the rest of the world. Yet, following a family tragedy, she has inherited an empire—-and with it, the keys to unlocking some of the most unimaginable secrets of mankind.
Together, with three other women who possess abilities of inhuman nature, Sorentino embarks on a journey to discover the full potential of their collective powers. But, along with the amazing comes the sinister, and some things that should have remained hidden–including those that can threaten not only their existence, but the rest of the world as well!
This new miniseries from comics veteran Scott Lobdell introduces us to Gia Sorentino, mental patient and heiress to a fortune… and to The Point, an organization that her parents created which seeks out, catalogues and collects the paranormal “curiosities” of the world. Now her parents are dead and a growing darkness threatens the world.
Freed from years of confinement, Gia, “First Daughter of the Earth” must now gather the others who can save the world—Ivana, from a mysterious race of flying beings known as The Above, Ara, who has been using her command of the element of fire to pose as a goddess on a remote island, and a mysterious fourth woman with control of water.
It’s an intriguing premise. However, the first issue doesn’t get far beyond being just a premise. We meet three of the Four Points, but there are still many questions about who they are and what exactly they face. What’s going on with the mysterious (and gruesome) events happening on opposite sides of the world? And what, exactly, ARE Gia’s powers?
The Four Points seems to have an interesting concept, but just what kind of story it is will hopefully be revealed in the coming issues. I’m waiting.
You can get The Four Points online from Aspenstore.com, or from your local comic retailer.
