An amazing adventure begins for two people in ‘The Shadow Threat’
I thought Krypton was a really good show. It gave viewers a look into this planet long before a terrible tragedy befell it. It also had a lot of great characters and tried to explain how this tragedy happened in the first place. When I heard about House of El: The Shadow Threat I hoped I may get to read it. I was able to get a digital copy of this graphic novel and here is my thoughts on it.
You can read the plot for The Shadow Threat here:
Zahn is one of Krypton’s elites: wealthy, privileged, a future leader. Sera is one of Krypton’s soldiers: strong, dedicated, fearless. Their rule-bound society has ordained that their paths should never cross.
But ground-quakes are shaking the planet’s surface. Rebellious uprisings are shaking the populace. Krypton’s top scientists–Jor-El and Lara–conduct a secret experiment that is meant to reform their planet from the cellular level up. Zahn and Sera must join forces to investigate the hidden dangers truly threatening Krypton. In the process, they form a bond that will endure past the end of the world…
I had a great time reading this graphic novel. These two characters couldn’t be more different, but over time they both realize a difficult truth. Things on the planet may be worse than they seem, and those in charge have no desire to do anything about it. If this planet has any hope of surviving, then these two people may need to work together. As this graphic novel comes to a close, it looks like the adventure for them both has only just begun.
