    Hypernaturals is building an incredibly rich universe for BOOM! Studios, with the potential to be the best title from BOOM! since Irredeemable and Incorruptible. I wasn't entirely on board with the first issue, but all of a sudden the magic took hold and I got wrapped up in issue #2. There are still a few things that could be improved, and I'm still confused as to the whole Clone 45 / Clone 46 thing, but Hypernaturals gets a strong four and a half out of five stars from me.

    Hypernaturals feels a bit like a Legion of Superheroes story that DnA never got to tell, which is really DC's loss. Read Full Review

    I'm getting the feeling that this book could become something better than itself and find myself hoping they steal more from the Watchmen playbook and write this as a maxi series instead of an ongoing as this story isn't solely about the characters themselves and I'd love to know that their thematic content will get wrapped up with some sort of satisfactory conclusion.

    The art for Hypernaturals only adds to the whole yawn factor. Like the writing, it's not all that bad. It just feels stale, like we've seen this book before. There is nothing exciting or eye-catching about it. Just as the first issue this book features multiple artists, Brad Walker handles the first six pages of issue #2 and Tom Derenick draws the rest. There is not a huge difference in either of their styles; nothing that really lets you know that a new artist is jumping in. They both do an okay job, but it's still got that aforementioned bore factor. Really, it's pretty bizarre that after two issues this series has to feature something like five different artists. Maybe there is a good reason for it, but like the book itself, I just can't figure it out. Read Full Review
