So far this series succeeds best when it focuses on young Alex and his struggle to adapt to his new family life. I don't care so much about his supposed alter ego, Omega. The series has a very "coming of age" feel, partially because of Farel Dalrymple's art. Every page feels ripped straight from a children's storybook (albeit one filtered through the mind of a cynical adult). It's an effective look all around. If only the story weren't guilty of covering too many bases. Lethem is a talented enough writer that I'm sure he'll have plenty of offers coming his way. There's no need to mold every one of his ideas into one story. Read Full Review
