The four-part black comedy centres around bipolar Brooklyn-based artist Timothy Woods who is involved in a terrible car accident.

In the aftermath of the crash, he finds that the medicine he has been using to treat his disorder has been blocking a set of latent superpowers.

The events of the comic are drawn from Bemis's own struggle with bipolar disorder. "Finding out I have bipolar, dealing with the disease, being in denial that I had it, screwing off and then eventually taking responsibility of it," he told USA Today.

"That was sort of a drama in and of itself, so in crafting this main character, my goal is to create the ultimate archetype of a guy like me dealing with this."

Bemis previously mentioned an interest in writing comics in 2009.

Polarity #1 will arrive in April.
