A tragic airline crash has killed hundreds. Why? And because of the massive catastrophe, a small town braces itself for the onslaught of news media invading their city. But the biggest mystery may be the man who randomly walked out of the corn fields following the crash. Who is he? Where did he come from? And why can’t he remember if he was a passenger on that fatal plane?
Picking up from the end of the first issue, we open with the immediate aftermath of the plane crash in Damascus, Kansas. News reporters and authorities are trying to investigate the cause of the crash. The local hospital is overwhelmed by all of the dead and injured passengers. The naked man who appeared in the nearby cornfield is questioned by police, but he has absolutely no memories of anything, including who he is or how he got there. All he has is vague visions of walking on water, and a voice telling him that people will hate him for being different. The man is left in one of the holding rooms at the Sheriff’s department.
Malcolm, the kid from the first issue, goes to the local church and yells at “God”. He says he asked God for a sign that he was real, and now thinks that the plane crash was that sign, because he was supposed to be in a car with two other kids who ended up victims of the crash. He trashes the place, and gets arrested by Natalie, a local Sheriff, who had earlier been questioning the mysterious man. When he she takes Malcolm back to the station, they discover that the man has somehow disappeared, leaving behind only a pack of cigarettes spelled out to say “SORRY”.
And that’s that. Again, a lot of talking heads, but not much actually happened. A very decompressed story that I find hard to recommend. Chacebook rating: 3 STARS
