Pass the Comics: The Might of Mysta

Mysta vs. the Hands



Sleestak's got a couple of more Mysta comics up. The first one pits Mysta against her creepiest adversary yet while also developing the comics' world some. As Sleestak points out, mankind is rebuilding its civilization after being wiped out by Mars, the god of War. Naturally Mysta - guardian of all of Earth's culture - is involved in the project, but we also learn that something called the Earth Council has been formed to facilitate the renewal.

Mysta protects the Grimmest Secret of All Time



The Earth Council also appears in this story and we learn that Mysta - either as the Council's appointed agent or as some sort of ruler over the Council - has the power and authority to prevent certain knowledge from being rediscovered by humanity. This leads to tension when a scientist learns how to split the atom and Mysta wants him stopped. Sleestak's right when he points out that Mysta comes across as frighteningly draconian in this story. Which makes her all the more fascinating to read about.
