The Fellowship was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of STEED AND MRS. PEEL #1 from BOOM Comics. The story is by Mark Waid, script by Caleb Monroe, and art by Will Sliney.

A group of men take over a missile site and launch a group of them that destroys London. Steed, Peel, and about a dozen lords and ministers survive by being in an underground bunker. The group had to go to the surface because a fire in the bunker is running out of air. The group is attacked by a group of unfortunate souls who were outside during the missile attack. Our heroes get assistance from an unexpected source…

WOW, blowing up London sure is an interesting start to the series! I really enjoyed the interaction between John Steed and Emma Peel. I’ve never watched the television series and not really all that familiar with the characters, but liked what I read here. I will definitely pick up the next issue to see where this story goes.

STEED AND MRS. PEEL #1 is in stores now and available at www.boom-studios.com.
