    Read Comic Books - Cody Mudge Jan 14, 2013

    Personally, I'd like to thank everyone who had a hand in making the eight issues that I have immensely enjoyed since I discovered the series. This isn't much of a review, and for that I apologize, but this comic has taught me a lot about comics, things that I might not have known for quite some time without it. This comic has inspired me, not to write, I'd be doing that anyways, those of you who do it know that you don't have a choice in the matter, it's an addiction, but it has inspired me to achieve something that could one day be printed in a great comic like this. Like days gone by where a writer could submit a story to a magazine or publication and that tiny success story could be the foundation of a career. So, thank you again. Creator-Owned Heroes has been a staple of my comics diet for quiet some time, and the void it leaves behind will not be easily filled. Read Full Review

    The anthology format continues to struggle and there will be talk for some time to come about what worked and didn't from this attempt. That it hits the shelves the same week as the announcement that DC Universe Presentshas been cut is worth noting. There seems little strength in the market to have a masthead carry a book through a cycle of creators and characters. More's the pity. Read Full Review
