The First is a race of godlike beings that believe they formed themselves in a passion of creation. Their past lost in a fog of myth, their present is a comfortable routine – until a new power emerges that could topple their preeminence. Faced with its first true threat, their society begins to fall apart, and soon the mystery of the Sigil-Bearers threatens to plunge The First into civil war.The First is a story of beautiful, powerful beings with feet of clay. Larger than life, they’re portrayed with an over-the-top vigor and vitality. Like The Real World set on Mount Olympus, The First boils over with intrigues great and small and with the fate of the universe hanging in the balance.The First V.3: Sinister Motives collects chapters 14-19 of The First. When gods break their vows, death is certain to follow. In the land of the First, dissent has erupted into open warfare. Seahn, young turk of House Dexter, has forsaken his ideals and his House to find power on the other side. Both sides are caught up in a tide of emotion and eruption of old hatreds. War seems inevitable. But war isn’t what two manipulative mentors have in mind for the gods of the CrossGen universe, as they take a direct hand in altering the course of history. Comics for the intelligent reader, The First gives clues and innuendo, but the reader is invited to uncover the truth behind the passionate politics of godlings in conflict.
