Ep 128 - Mara

This Week: Acclaimed creator Brian Wood (The Massive, DMZ, X-Men) and brilliant newcomer Ming Doyle (Guardians of the Galaxy, Fantastic Four, Girl Comics) bring you Mara, the story of an especially gifted woman in a sports- and war-obsessed future. When she starts manifesting strange superpowers, the world that once embraced her turns against her, and for this young woman who once had it all, it's almost too much to bear.
