Freshmen Vol. 1 Hardcover
(W) Hugh Sterbakov      (A) Leonard Kirk        (Cov) Rodolfo Migliari

Relive college memories with the Freshmen, collected for the first time in this deluxe hardcover edition!

Co-created by Seth Green (Robot Chicken, Family Guy) and Hugh Sterbakov, Freshmen Vol. 1: Introduction to Superpowers details the fantastic adventures of 14 members of the Freese College freshmen class, who have all been imbued with miraculous superpowers by the explosion of a mysterious device called the Ax-Cell-Erator!

With powers based on whatever they were thinking at that pivotal moment, some of the kids are blessed with fantastic abilities, like the power to seduce others, or tandem telekinesis. But others are cursed: A die-hard vegan can communicate with plants and vegetables, leaving him nothing to eat. A math whiz must become drunk or stoned in order to inebriate his enemies. One kid woke up with a major boost to his, ahem, personal equipment. And then there’s a talking Beaver…

Also available in a super-limited edition signed by co-creators Hugh Sterbakov and Seth Green!

Full Color      176 pages       $29.99      hardcover

I have to admit, I have been mighty curious about this series for awhile now. It seems like the hardcover would be a good place to jump on. Stay tuned to TheQuarterbin for a full review of Freshman: Summer Vacation Special!
