THE TWILIGHT CHILDREN!!!
AGE SUGGESTION: 17+

Number of Issues: 4

Synopsis from dcuniverseinfinite.com: For the first time ever, legendary comics creators Gilbert Hernandez (Love and Rockets) and Darwyn Cooke (DC: THE NEW FRONTIER) have joined forces for a surreal project unlike anything you’ve ever read before! When a white orb washes up on the shore of a remote Latin American village, a group of children naturally poke at the strange object to see what it is. The orb explodes, leaving the children completely blind. And when a beautiful young woman who may be an alien is found wandering the seafront, she’s taken in by the townspeople, but soon becomes a person of interest to a quirky pair of undercover CIA agents, and the target of affection for a young scientist. Can they come together to prevent an all-out alien invasion and save the souls in this sleepy, seaside town?

Now that that’s over with, here are some discussion questions:

  1. Appearing as a mysterious woman with mysterious powers, how does the character Ela’s interactions with the village people showcase her unique powers?
  2. What do the glowing orbs do to the village people and what is their connection to Ela?
  3. Why does Tito appear to be interested in the various men throughout the series? What is her reasoning to not initially liking Ela?
  4. Taking place in a South American village, what makes the setting unique in a story involving aliens?
  5. How does Artist Darwyn Cooke’s influence in Twilight Children enhance the science fiction elements of the series?
