Birthright #1 review
After the Rhodes family thought they had lost their son, possibly to kidnapping, their lives are ripped apart. Sometime after a year of no news, a drifter appears out of the woods, now he’s a suspect in the kidnapping but a father knows his son, and this man is him.

Josh Williamson, the Ghosted writer, has a very cool and creative story going here with Birthright #1.

The ability to jump from one world to the next opens up so many fantastic avenues, not to mention the crazy cliffhanger after just issue #1.
Birthright #1 is flying relatively low on many peoples radars, so be the first cool dude to introduce your friends or hordes of anonymous folks to it. They’ll thank you for it later.
