    Now, the story. The set up is different. Im not sure if the Mighty is really to betrusted. It feels like Ive read this story somewhere in Robinson and SmithsThe Golden Age " right down to the buzz hair cut of the prodigy. As a set upissue, it did its work, although nothing groundbreaking was introduced. But Ima sucker for comic book superhero stories set in the 1950s, so who knows. This storycould be the more than sum of all the other series Ive alluded to above. Itcould have the epic depth of The Golden Age and the gritty reality of Blackmask. Read Full Review

    I have a bad feeling that "The Mighty" is going to sink without a trace; released with very little publicity, unconnected to any other comic, the prospects for it in this market aren't promising. At the same time, I really hope it does succeed because this was a great first issue and I want to see more. If you haven't checked it out, please do. I think you'll be really pleased.

    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Feb 5, 2009

    Providing the second issue doesn't take a downward turn, I'm in for at least six issues to see where everything is going. I would like to see the pace pick up a bit with at least one major reveal by the end of next issue. Peter J. Tomasi tells a very good first issue, earning The Mighty #1 3.5 out of 5 Stars.

    I really have no idea what to make of The Mighty, because this first issue made no impression on me whatsoever. Tomasi and Champagne's series might very well turn into something special, it just shows no signs of doing so from this debut. If you're in the market for another vanilla, generic and lukewarm take on the superhero, though, by all means give it a try. Read Full Review
