    Despite being a fairly slim volume, No Hero #0 has me interested enough in the series that I'll definitely be picking up the first full issue. The ideas that Ellis is playing with are interesting and socially relevant, there's a decent hook ("How badly do you want to be a superhero?"), and the story of this issue already hints at some compelling yet subtle mysteries (the date of the formation of the Levellers is 6th June 1966 (6/6/66) and The Front Line form on 7th July 1977 (7/7/77) - could they be significant?). The back matter also provides a wealth of background information on the series from Ellis ("Much more than you needed to know, right?") that drops some hints as to the sort of direction that he'll be taking with the book. As long as Ryp can work quickly enough to produce issues on something approaching a regular basis (we're still waiting for the oft-delayed Black Summer to wrap up), this looks like it could be another strong offering from the team.
