It is interesting how some things attract your attention. I love this book. It has a great story that is just starting to percolate, and the visual narrative will well delivered. What grabs me about this book it the characters. I am enthralled with the look and presentation of the characters that make up this team. I am immediately invested in them. I can’t wait for issue two.
Dark Horse Comics / Berger Books
Written by Peter Milligan
Art by Jesus Hervas
Colors by James Devlin
Letters by Sal Cipriano
Cover Art by Hervas
Fans of Peter Milligan will not be disappointed by this book. His penchant for thinking and exploring beyond the obvious is clearly at play in this book that is set in a very “normal” place for Milligan. The story is gripping and thrilling. Jesus Hervas does a fantastic job rendering some intense scenes that evoke shock and speechlessness. This book appears to be a wild ride. Get on board.

After all, it’s not often that you have a bad book on your pull-list.
The rating system is as follows:
