The only problem with this series is that I have to wait a whole month between Issues! Every issue flies by, I wish I could just keep reading more! The journey thru the first 9 issues to find himself (and find out what the heck was going on) was so fun and mind-bending, and now he's on a mission! Can't wait to see what happens next! Favorite series in a long time

Didn't read the last series with Robbie Reyes so didn't know much about him... and still don't. Had to check the cover mid way to make sure I wasn't mistakenly reading "Totally Awesome Hulk".
