About This Item
In 1962 Jason Fisher was given astonishing powers by the United States government--powers he used to defend the nation as the New American. He and his teammates in the Civil Defense Corps were real-life superheroes.
Except that it was all a fraud. A conspiracy. And now, 10 years after the CDC was torn apart by racism, infighting and murder, the Corps' surviving members find themselves pulled in very different directions. Missy Devereaux--a.k.a. Ole Miss--is transitioning from the First Lady of Mississippi into a candidate for governor and defender of a vanishing and hateful way of life. Amber Eaton--formerly known as Amber Waves--has become a domestic terrorist, using her powers to infiltrate and destroy the country's centers of power.
Somewhere in the middle stands Jason Fisher, who has remained a crime-fighter even as evidence mounts that he is accomplishing nothing besides propping up a system that's rigged against him as a black man in America.
In a nation being torn apart, what does it mean to fight for the American way?
A decade after the debut of their groundbreaking WildStorm series The American Way, Academy Award-winning writer John Ridley ( 12 Years a Slave, American Crime) and artist Georges Jeanty ( Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 8) revisit their parallel Earth for a look at its gritty 1970s--a time frighteningly like our own--in The American Way: Those Above and Those Below. Collects issues #1-6.
