Last October, comic book publisher Humanoids announced that John Cassaday was named as their Chief Creative Officer, and that Mark Waid was named as their Director of Creative Development.

Today, a preview of the first issue from their shared H1 universe was released.

Coming this June will be Ignited from writers Mark Waid and Kwanza Osajyefo, and artist Phil Briones.

The official synopsis is as follows: “It’s the first day back at Phoenix Academy High, but this year there’s no back to school excitement in the air as returning students and faculty are haunted by memories of last year’s horrific attack. So many friends and colleagues were lost, and some of those who survived underwent changes; they Ignited, gaining supernatural abilities they barely understand. Little do they know this is just the beginning…. “

Starting a new comics shared universe is always a tricky thing, but with veterans Waid and Cassaday being behind it, this should be a great start, and I can’t wait to read the issue when it comes out on June 5th!

Look for the issue with either the main cover by Cassaday (above) or a variant cover by Yanick Paquette (below).
