"His name was Forager!!" Allred New Gods series

Michael Allred and family are putting out a story about Forager, one of the odder New Gods. It's coming out under the Young Animals imprint, which is the new Vertigo I guess?

I usually like Allred's stuff, and have thought Forager pretty cool ever since his heroic death in Cosmic Odyssey, which led to Batman putting Orion in his place.

I have no idea what happened before but that scene was pretty powerful, even sans context.

That one page makes me want to read the entire issue. I'm kind of impressed.

Forager is one of the New Gods but was raised by the Insect Legion, a sort of underclass on New Genesis. Orion dislikes the Insect Legion and refers to them as bugs.

Anyhoo, here's the preview, and I'm pleasantly surprised to see Allred reference the Cosmic Odyssey storyline and Forager's "death."

When I originally read this thread, I thought "the cold, stoic Batman reacted like this? Kinda out there. Good scene, but"

Reading this again, and I'm now happy with the way he reacted.

Because he cares about everyone

I'm interested in anything Allred does.
