Preview: DC's HIGH LEVEL Sets Up Its Biggest Twist Yet

High Level Comic Preview Title

Warning: SPOILERS for High Level #5

The story of High Level has left readers on the hook since the last issue changed everything we thought we knew about the story being told. But after our preview of High Level #6... the suspense may be downright torture.

After setting the stage and building out the world of High Level, the heroine Thirteen and the 'chosen one' Minnow seemed to be building up momentum, finally reaching the lowest levels of the titular paradise. Until their presumed friends were revealed to be enemies, villains became potential heroes, and both of the book's leads were caught in a trap they couldn't hope to escape. All things considered, one heck of a way to leave readers hanging. So, will Thirteen and Minnow find a way to escape? Or will the tale of High Level end in a heartbreaking surprise?

As fair warning, the first pages of High Level's next issue actually contain TWO potential twists readers will need some time to process. As we alluded to above, the situation facing the book's heroines is only getting more dire, so prepare yourselves for the worst. But even more tantalizing is the marked hand silently moving pieces across the board--just as surprised to see Thirteen and Minnow end up in their current dilemma. Given all this uncertain scheming, it's hard to even know just what the issue's title, "Chapter Six: Ascension" really means...

The full issue promises plenty of shocks and revelations, but readers can check out the first preview pages from High Level #6 arriving in stores this Wednesday, September 18th.

But if readers have missed out on the story thus far, now seems the perfect time to catch up. We can't guess how this chapter will end, but when you're dealing with utopias, prophecies, and the future of humanity... anything is possible.
