Aspen Comics proudly presents their first ever super-hero series, IDOLIZED!

What would a real world filled with superheroes look like? In this all-new series it gets ugly, as a young, girl-next door named Joule reveals her tortured past and her desperate attempt for revenge—all while auditioning in front of the cameras and judges of the hot new TV show “SuperHero Idol!”

IDOLIZED begins here, as we experience the initial audition that will make Joule a household name in homes across America, and we begin to learn the secrets she is hiding may lead to her shocking downfall!

    I ended this issue with the same opinion as I posted about issue #0: this is certainly off to an interesting start. Idolized may be one to watch. Read Full Review

    Aspen Comics is known for putting all its might behind unique stories. As Aspen's first superhero comic, I hope to see Idolized break away from this rather clich beginning. I have faith that David Schwartz will be taking readers on a journey that has not been embarked upon before. We just need to get out of the gate. Read Full Review

    It's always hard to judge a comic based on its first issue, and many of the things I complain about will probably slip to the background in future issues. But I thought Idolized #1 had some nice art and scene setting along with some fairly ordinary writing. I hope we can move away from the awkwardness of this first issue and move into some interesting explorations of reality TV and superheroes, and that David Schwarts and Micah Gunnell can deliver a winning comic in future issues.

    So if that was aspect put you off in any way I recommend that you try and see past it and just sit back and enjoy it. But don’t enjoy Leslie—she’s mine. Read Full Review

    Gunnell, a veteran here at Aspen MLT, does a good job as usual " though I'm not crazy about his style " but his art is not enough to save a story that starts out seeming somewhere between clich and trying too hard. I'd go so far as to say Image's recent America's Got Powersseries is more interestingly handled.That said, it's not a bad comic and might find a readership and in fact get much better once some more details emerge, but as a first issue I'm not jumping for joy.
