    This comic is the opposite of most super-hero books. Nothing ever really happens in the story. It all happens inside the very small, insular world of a very strange young woman. And for that reason, I found it absolutely compelling. Troy Hickman does a wonderful job of making a very small story seem quite compelling. I don't know how this might read if Twilight Guardian becomes a regular series, but as a standalone comic, this is wonderful. Read Full Review

    That doesn't mean the book isn't without its flaws. Reza's art gets the job done well enough, but not much beyond that. The various characters in this issue are almost completely devoid of any facial expressions. I suppose that helps add to the humdrum suburban malaise, but that still doesn't make it forgivable. More glaring is the fact that I still don't care one way or the other what the future of this series is. The problem with grounding your book in the boring realm of reality is that nothing interesting ever happens. I'm happy with Twilight Guardian #1 as a slice-of-life story - something that provides a brief glimpse into the life of an unusual person. Beyond that, I can't imagine how an ongoing series could stay afloat for long. Read Full Review

    An interesting and very different take on a superhero in the real world. Either Hickman played it too subtly or this book may be too real for most readers to stick with. Only more issues can answer that question, but we'll have to wait for the vote tally to see if there will ever be another issue. Read Full Review
