School's out and summer is officially underway! But it's not all fun and games, as it becomes clear that with the Academy gone, all new threats are popping up to try and take advantage of descendant kids. Laurel and Alexis set out to deal with this while the teens head to Dawson Bay for a weekend at the beach.
Summer for the Descendants promises to be packed with fun and fulfillment. Too bad it will also be packed with magical monsters, killer robots and maybe even a super-powered team-up!
They are heroes. They are people. This is their story.
Styled after works from the Bronze Age of Comic Books, The Descendants is presented in a unique manner: as an all-prose comic book complete with issues, specials and annuals, each telling a complete story that ties into the overall tale of the titular superheroes.
It is also written as a throwback and love letter to an earlier age of superheroes, to a time before everything was grim and gritty and when comic books were fun.
Collects Issues #25-31 of the web serial The Descendants by Landon Porter.
