The first three chapters of Messenger #1 are shorter, about 3400 words total. But they’re also all action. Like crazy, insane action. You want fights between super-powered people who can push cars around like toys? It’s got that. You want a rooftop brawl twenty-four stories up? Got that, too. Chase scene with a death toll? Oh, hell yeah. Collateral damage that’s bound to be an insurance nightmare? Definitely.
