Darien Connors was your average kid: In love with the prettiest girl in school, bullied by the school jock, the descendant of a King and Queen… what, wait?! Yep! After being bullied for the last time, Darien realizes not only his powers, but an extraterrestrial kidnapping reveals the ultimate secret – His parents were a King & Queen, and the most powerful Star Mages in the universe – but they died without telling him who he was, or his destiny.
The story, while interesting, has not really captured my attention. It could be because it’s still early in the series; however there’s not a lot holding my attention. The drawing and coloring are clean and bright, which brings to the life the kinda dull story line. I’m going to hold out for issue #2 to see if the story picks up; i’m really hoping it does.

Just days after his induction into the WWE Hall of Fame as part of the 2014 class, his appearance at WrestleMania 30 and less than 24 hours from his appearance on WWE Monday Night Raw, we are sad to report that The Ultimate Warrior has passed away at the age of 54.
The WWE Superstar, born James Brian Hellwig, has a career that spanned for 9 years (from 1987 to 1996) and was just recently inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
