In The End: So how do you start off a series about an organization that will monitor and police meta-human activity all over the world? Simple, you disband it and thus the political intrigue begins. This was an impressive first issue that hit all of the beats that it needed to. While action will be an important part of the title, what will make this book work is Rucka's ability to mix the world of intelligence and super-heroes and balance both genres equally. I have all of the faith in the world that Rucka will make it work, and that this will be a book I look forward to month after month. Read Full Review
