— Oklahoma writer R.J. Woods is creating his own multicultural line of comics with New Myth Comics.

“Creating a universe where it is extremely diverse, creating characters with diverse leads ... that is our biggest thing,” Woods said.

The lead characters of New Myth are a mix of different ages, races and sexes. Woods said he's already received great feedback to this at conventions and store appearances.

“People are excited to see a broader array of characters,” he said.

New Myth's titles can be previewed and purchased at They'll also be on sale at a launch party from 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday at the Old School Event Center, 201 N Broadway in Moore.

Three titles are available so far:

“Black Clover” features a hero who was once the world's greatest, then he retired to pursue a career in politics. “The public needs him again,” Woods said. “He's pulled back into becoming a hero.”

“Download” begins in Oklahoma City, and features a teenage girl who develops superpowers. The series follows her efforts to deal with those changes.

“Salt and Ignite” features a superpowered couple facing difficulties in the hero community after Salt breaks the heroes' code to avenge the death of his uncle.

All of these titles are set in the same superhero universe.
