*Quick review, some spoilers

Scott Anders was an astronaut sent to space by the CIA in the 1960s. Today, he came hurtling back to earth…and the CIA doesn’t remember him.

In 1967, the CIA sent astronauts into space to investigate an astronomical anomaly. Unfortunately, before they could report their findings, they mysteriously vanished never to be seen again… That is until today, when one of those long missing astronauts, Scott Anders, crashes to earth and emerges, powerful, totally unscathed and hellbent on one purpose-to return to where he has been for all those decades. But where has he been? How did he gain his new invulnerability? What is the mysterious organization that stands in his way, determined to protect the secret of Kayless at all costs? The answers to these mysteries start here.

Scott Anders, a former astronaut who was sent to space by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in the 1960s, returned to Earth today, but to his surprise, the CIA doesn’t remember him. This strange turn of events is explored in the comic book series, Kayless #1, published by Silverline Comics.

The comic book, written by Brent Larson and illustrated by Luis Czerniawski, follows the story of Scott Anders and his return to Earth. However, when he tries to make contact with the CIA, he is met with confusion and disbelief. The agency has no record of his mission or his existence.

As the story unfolds, readers are taken on a journey that explores the mysteries of space travel, government secrecy, and personal identity. The art, colors, and letters by Leandro Huergo and Wes Locher, respectively, bring the story to life and add depth and emotion to the characters.

The comic book is a thrilling and thought-provoking read that raises questions about the role of government agencies in space exploration, the ethics of classified missions, and the impact of space travel on the human psyche. It also touches on themes of memory, identity, and the search for truth.

Kayless #1 is a promising start to what looks like a compelling and engaging comic book series. It is a must-read for fans of sci-fi and mystery genres. The comic book is available for purchase online and and March 13th, 2024 at comic book stores.  Previews code: JAN241975
