    What appears to be an oversized book (but still 3.99) with 5 vignettes featuring origin stories of characters who survived the pandemic that killed millions and left a very few with extraordinary powers.

    Straczynski writes with a detached style, and that made the initial miniseries a bit of a slog. Promising concept, just muddled execution. Well this is different as JMS has maybe 8 pages per character to establish the origin and the environment going forward. It's still written at a higher level than your run of the mill Big 2 book, but that makes the book that much more engaging of a read.

    The story alone was satisfying enough, but the art was unique and REALLY good. Truthfully, it looks like heavily processed more
