“The Knight” takes superhero and crime comics tropes and tilts them just enough to give a fresh perspective, delivering a compelling and entertaining book that left me wondering how a lot of its best ideas had managed not to be discovered before. – ComicBook.com
The Knight is the first original, ongoing, Visionary Universe comic series from Visionary Comics, debuting with a FREE 32-page first issue available now! Get it Here!
Set in Washington DC, the story opens with the beginning of the Knight’s final battle with his archenemy Charon in 2025. As the city burns around them during a cataclysmic event, the threat of a bio-weapon that can destroy the entire city is hanging in the balance!
We then jump back to more current times as the origin of the Knight begins to unfold. In an interesting twist, not only is the Knight’s identity a secret in the story, it’s a secret for us as well. Instead we meet several candidates, any of whom could be the mysterious Knight!
Is it Kincaid, the secret agent of some unrevealed agency, recently returned from an assassination mission in Afghanistan? He has just moved to Washington DC, and seeks to remain off the grid. Is being the mysterious vigilante his new mission?
Is it Father William Bennett, the disillusioned priest who serves at St. Mark’s parish located in one of the roughest sections of the city? Surrounded by rampant poverty and violence, he has found his faith failing him, but his compassion for others remains strong. Is being the Knight his new way to make a difference?
Is it Miguel Jimenez or Kate Price, two honest, committed detectives working out of Ward 8? Miguel is a family man, who carries a heavy burden with his work, dealing with the worst in humanity. Kate is a single, professional, driven woman whose life is about the badge. Both are faced with a frightening new crime wave sweeping the city turning children into killers.
And what of David Michaels, the drug addict and dealer, who lost his family and becomes a target for his former gang boss, Charon? A ruthless, terrifying man of incredible strength, with white skin, red eyes, and sharp teeth, Charon thoroughly enjoys torturing those who betray him. David seems the one drawing these various individuals together in a series of events that will lead to one of them becoming the first costumed vigilante in the world!
