Very solid start. Maybe a bit too meta with some of the dialogue, but definitely a fresh and confident voice in the world of super hero comics. The rapid fire crazy sci-fi concepts make me want explore more of America's corner of the MU.

FT Metler - Mar 6, 2017

That's a fair review regarding narrative problems, but I can't help but notice whenever a comic has a gay hero or prominent character there are often a high number of users rating it a 1. It is reflected in the large discrepancy between the critic and user avg ratings. Only mentioned it because it again seems to be the case.

Billyndo - Mar 6, 2017

Well, I don't agree with you. Orlando's Midnighter and Midnighter and Apollo titles have generally high ratings in their reviews, and those comics addresses homosexuality in a very explicit and prominent way. Also, we can wait for the new Iceman comic release to testify such homophobia in comics. Batwoman tends to be such an incredible comic. I'm not ignoring there are lots of homophobic comics fans, I just don't agree that that is the main cause of the discontentment regarding America.
