"Powers" in Murderland

“I just read Murderland #2. Wow. Great story. Can't wait to see this rivalry from Hollins past unfold. Is an explanation of their strange powers coming at some point?”

While I will generally leave such questions to be answered in the book, I figure it’s fair to give people who might swing by THE BODYMORE SUN a little extra insight.

In answer to the question, there will be fuller explanations. Note the plural form there. There are also some hints already buried in the first two issues.

I don't think I'd be betraying the story in telling you now that (perhaps) the best way to look at the "powers" in MURDERLAND is as heightened martial arts techniques. Some characters may have been cursed, others have simply tapped into a little-used facet of human potential.

Going forward, you'll find characters from various walks of life trying to make sense of these phenomena through their own unique lenses.

Stay COMPLICATED, Murderlanders!
