Dawn Comic is an American comic series created by writer/artist Joseph M. Linsner. The series was created as a direct response to the popular comic strip, Batman. The original character first showed up on the original cover of Cry for Dawn#1 before appearing in his own one-shot story in issue #2. Unlike many of Batman's villains, Dawn is completely serious about his crime-fighting. He isn't funny, and he doesn't have any gadget-oriented abilities.
The character's name is Dawn Price, and he works for the Burnside Organization, a secret government agency that solves high profile disappearances, mysterious attacks, and crimes. Dawn is a rising star in his position, and is often compared to Bruce Wayne, the older and more experienced super hero. Unlike Batman, Dawn has no super powers, but he does have a secret. It is his knowledge of the zero dawn comic book code that keeps him in line.
This multi-part comic book begins in July, with Dawn attending a tutorial at Burnside to learn the code. The Burnside Organization has a long history of solving high profile disappearances and criminal attacks, and it is Dawn's ticket to working for the government. As part of his training, Dawn receives a mission from his handler: to travel to the free world of Zero Dawn in search of revolutionary information regarding the upcoming battle between the robots and humans. In order to accomplish this task, Dawn must first go on a perilous trek through the wilderness of the Wild Coast. He is aided by a few interesting locals, most notably the fearless warrior played by Dexter Darden.
Along the way, Dawn meets up with a number of interesting new friends, including an African-American robot, Maxim, played by Summer Glauberman, who has an intriguing relationship with Dawn. The three of them become stranded on an island and must work together to survive. On their journey, they are joined by the robotically-like Maxim, who has a plan to rescue the humans. The three of them eventually make it to the top of the cliff where they meet up with the resistance, led by the amazing Raylen Banks, played by Dexter Darden.
In the third part of the Dawn comics, the resistance struggles to hold off the robots while Dawn and Maxim work to learn more about the mysterious source of their power. This part introduces a few new characters as well as some returning favorites, such as Dr. Isaac's assistant,ials Danza, and the mysterious Evelyn. These characters help Dawn and Maxim learn more about the origins of the Dawn Crest formula as well as how the formula is being used to help save the planet. This third issue also introduces the new superhero team known as the Justice League.
The fourth issue of Dawn contains some significant events that are incredibly shocking. For one, we get to learn that Maxim, Dawn's boyfriend, was not the only human to survive the nuclear blast. In fact, Max and Dawn survived thanks to a mysterious force that saved their lives. Also, in the issue, Dr. Isaac's assistant,ials Danza is revealed to have been the one responsible for the Dawn Crest's discovery. She was secretly given the formula before the blast, and is now trying to use it to help save the earth.
The fifth and final issue of the July issue features a special one-off issue that promises to explore some of the fan theories from the TV show and comic books. This issue also includes an original one-page story by comics writer Warren Ellis. The issue includes a teaser image of Dawn and reveals what is planned for the final issues. An additional three one-page spread has been included in the comic, featuring art from the TV show and Dawn's past. There is also a deleted scene from the TV show featuring Adam Warlock in the background.
The Dawn Graphic Novel #6 - Fall of Giants limited release is written by Warren Ellis and drawn by Joe Caramagna. This exciting book promises to be another excellent chapter in the award-winning Dawn storyline. The cover of the comic shows a spectacular scene of a massive space ship impacting on a city on Mars. There are two supporting characters, an android and an army soldier, who are stranded on the planet. The two races, the Humans and the Asimov's creatures, will work together to save the Earth.
