Preview - Medusa #1

Medusa can only be defeated by viewing her own reflection or by beheading. Those are relevant to the more traditional, Greek mythology Medusa. The Medusa in Blue Water Comics' Medusa #1 doesn't have quite the same proclivities.

Written by Nick Lyons and illustrated by Brandon Hendricks and Carl Ruley (colors by Antonio Bennett and Miguel Marquesdasilva, letters by Warren Montgomery and cover by Claudio Sepulveda), Medusa #1 features Gloria Merrick. Gloria cuts herself on the sword that beheaded the original Medusa, transforming her into a gorgon as well.

Medusa's sisters, Stheno and Eryale, aren't happy that Gloria is pretending to be their sister and seek to see her dead. Gloria must battle wits with the duo while deciding whether or not being Medusa is the right career choice.

Medusa #1 is in stores April 1 with interiors below.
