Being a college student can be tough. Being a college student, that helps support the family is even tougher. But being a college student, that also has to be a superhero is the worst. Meet Tracy Lor, a college student trying to do her best to balance school with her personal life. Between work, school and helping her widowed mother around the house, Tracy thought things couldn’t get any more stressful. That all changed one night when she finds out that inside of her lies an ancient force of nature called Xob. Now armed with with super strength, flight, the ability to control lightning and her magic lightning ax, she must use these gifts to stop the evil Lord Eklips from taking over our world.

Xob the lightning wielder is the second series created by Kyrun Silva (Shaman’s Destiny, Big Tree Comics) . The series is written by Kyrun, with line art provided by David Jaxon, colors by King Bola and letters by Nikki Powers. Xob is a throwback of sorts to superhero books, mixed with a bit of fantasy. The artwork provided by David and King is beautiful. Reminiscent to an 90s cartoon, mixed with a little anime. It’s fluid and fun and really works for the story.
The book is the first in an ongoing series from Big Tree Comics. It also ushers in BTC’s first wave of costumed super heroes. The book will feature exciting fight scenes, colorful villains and more. If you are a fan of Kyrun’s first series, Shaman’s Destiny, it will also have ties to that book. Xob the lightning wielder is currently live on kickstarter now with rewards for everyone.
