He's finally here! The Morningstar himself starts his 'world tour' (of sorts) bringing health and wealth everywhere he goes, with promises of superpowers for those who embrace his vision of unity. But will that include Tempest, with his ever expanding array of weather-based powers? And if he doesn't choose the Morningstar of his own free will, will he be able to resist the unearthly magnetism of the Morningstar and those in his organization? Things are swiftly being put into place that could mean big things for everyone on Earth, but 'big things' might not mean 'good things', as Tempest will find out when he aligns himself with the only nation that still resists the lure of the Morningstar. Recommended for ages 13 and up.

'Hand of the Morningstar: 'Advent' and 'Resurrection' are good. Very good in fact....Zondervan hasn't skimped on the details....I was pleasantly taken aback as I read through these 2 volumes, in one sitting no less, at how much took me by genuine surprise. I've been reading superheroes from The Big Two for 15 years and am accustomed to deaths, betrayals, and resurrections on a monthly basis, but [writers] Mike Miller and Brett Burner wisely let the reader in on a few secrets at a time. It is a page turner and it's obvious that this series has a few more aces up its sleeve yet....Miller's black and white art is straight forward, but far from bland. He knows what he's doing....There's plenty of action in the story for him to litter each book with power packed fight scenes and buckets of energetic splash pages. The expressions are spot-on, and sometimes the reactions are downright funny. This helps to compliment the script perfectly....There is a great sequence in which Tempest [one of the main characters] is reading the Bible as the words come alive. Jesus has never looked so heroic! To some, this may come across as not too subtle but it contains the gospel message beautifully and I actually found the choice of verses quite moving. There's something in these digests for comics fans, Christians, and those that are both or neither....[T]hese two volumes honestly did captivate me.' -- Infuzemag.com
