AMARA ENTERTAINMENT &  KID COMICS PRESENTS: PURGE – A NEW DIRECTION

“My name is Roosevelt Pitt, Jr. I’m the creator, owner and publisher of PURGE. I’ve been a comic book fan for most of my childhood and adult life. Comics have ignited my creativity and given me the drive to create stories and characters that can inspire and touch the heart of those who never saw themselves as being the hero. My desire since launching my very first black white comic in 1992, has been to create characters of color that would represent the very best African and African Americans have to offer. And thus Purge was born. After a year of sweat and tears, Purge – A New Direction is complete. A labor of love that was forged through a collaboration with KID Comics. Now together we are ready to take the next step

The Story

Purge has taken on the mantle, hero of New Salem, a state-of-the -art metropolis he himself designed. The vision of New Salem is to build a true utopia within the network of modern America. However, nefarious forces threaten to destroy that vision and exploit Purge’s para-natural abilities for their purposes. Now more than ever, Purge must live up to his title as the purifier, the protector of the city and the people he vowed to lead to a better world. Can he do it?

Richard Kincaid is haunted by a dark past. A past he can barely remember, but will never forget. Something horrific yet incredibly prolific transformed him into the man he is today. A man with the mind of a computer and the power of a god. Today he is Purge.
