Excellence tells the story of Spencer Dales – a boy with a fantastical family history. His father acts as a member of a secret society of black magicians, an organization called Aegis. Since its inception, members have helped only those deemed to have potential. His father wants him to take up the family business, but Spencer has his reservations. In his eyes, Aegis represents a broken system desperately in need of change.
This isn’t the first trip back to print for Excellence. Issue #1 hit a second printing back on May 20, just two weeks after it initially hit shelves on May 8.
