Superheroes. Death. Good versus evil. In the comic book world, it’s often you might find all of these characteristics within one comic book. What happens when someone, or a group of people in this case, decide to focus on individual components to make a story interesting and develop enough depth to be curious to see what happens next? In Hiatus Studios does just that with their anthology, Shards: Volume 1.

One never quite knows when something will change their life. We all have those moments, whether good or bad, but sometimes the cause of the change can be quite surprising.

Weavers is not your typical mobster versus rival gang kind of story. This story has a creep factor relatable to those familiar with the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode, “Conspiracy,” or an earlier scene in the film, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Kahn. If you’re not a Star Trek fan, then perhaps think of Spider-Man meets Alien. In this case, your body isn’t bitten by a spider or eventually destroyed once the Alien matures and plunges through your chest; however, a spider does invade your body, giving you special abilities and eventually twisting your thoughts to the will of the collective – the Weavers syndicate. Okay, so maybe the last reference is more of a stretch than the others.
The best way to describe this franchise is “Hogwarts for superheroes.” By taking the DC heroes that we know and love, transmuting them to high school age, and putting them all together at “Super Hero High,” the film definitely gives off a Harry Potter vibe, especially in the beginning. Still, by the end, it manages to find its own footing.
