Created by Dennis Hopeless and Kevin Mellon, “Gearhead” features a female protagonist, Shelby, who embarks on a mission to unseat the corrupt superheroes who govern the country. According to Arcana’s synopsis of the series, the main character’s adventure takes her “from the drag strip all the way to the White House.”
With mainstream properties like Marvel’s Hulk and Punisher characters under her belt, it’s certainly interesting to see Hurd take an interest in one of the more under-the-radar comics titles of recent years. Of course, there’s only so much you can do with Batman, Superman, Spider-Man and the X-Men, we guess. Could this be a sign of things to come?
