Beyonders #1 came out this week and I picked it up. Its fun but its not particularly deep so far. Imagine 18-year old Fox Mulder finds out then that every wacky legend and conspiracy theory he believes in is accurate and the regular world he's grown up in is the lie. That's roughly what the first issue covers.
Of interest to this forum is that it appears it will cover what "really" happened to George Mallory on Everest, the Baghdad Battery, the Antikythera Mechanism, the maps of Piri Reis and Zheng He, and Avebury, among other things. There's also a contest in the comic, with little icons and such scattered through the artwork that when deciphered will give you the directions to enter (I'm not going to bother).
I asked my local comic book store to add it to my pull list as I'm curious as to where the story will go.
