Cassandra Jurich is about to lose her job, be accused of murder and become Los Angeles’ first masked vigilante – she just doesn’t know it yet. In this gripping and gritty tale from Womanthology artist Candace Ellis and Transformers Prime writer Mairghread Scott, we follow an average EMT who discovers that she has powers beyond what normal humans can believe and that someone is trying to kill her for it.
But Cassie isn’t the only one with powers and she’ll have to survive LA’s most ruthless narco-trafficker, the deadliest assassin on the West Coast and the man pulling all the strings if she wants any answers.
Grab your flak jackets, readers. It’s going to be one hot summer in … Triage.
WE Comics brings readers another awesome series entitled Triage.

I found this issue to be excellent. I loved Scott’s writing, as well as Ellis’s artwork. I’m intrigued by the events that have taken place in this first issue, and I’m curious to find out where Cassie’s journey will lead her.
Buy this book either in print or digital. This first issue will immediately grab readers attention and never let it go till the end of the book leaving readers to want to find out what happens next.
