    Infinity Man and the Forever People #2 is another issue worth picking up. Didio and Giffen continue to offer engaging character interactions between the junior New Gods. Combined with bright and fun art by Grummett, Hanna, and Atiyeh, Infinity Man and the Forever Peoplefeels far from a standard DC title, which may be enough for new readers to pick it up.

    Infinity Man and the Forever People #2 is running totally on charm and personality.  There isn't much of a story, but I enjoyed it anyway.  I guess it's the excitement of learning the new team, but that only takes you so far.  Giffen and Didio better introduce some sort of plot and soon.  Until then, sit back and watch as the New Gods visit a farm.  Really, a farm.

    Didio and Giffen's basic premise of these young New Gods on a combination Peace Corps/study abroad mission is maintained here. The dialogue brings you up-to-speed if you're starting with this issue. And while we don't quick get to see the scene from the cover, there is action to be had. And Darkseid, looking quite a bit more bedazzled than when Kirby left him. Read Full Review

    The art and my hope that the next issue might be pretty good earn this book a bit of lukewarm fondness on my part. The series remains an effective and dutiful attempt at recreating a Jack Kirby comic for a modern audience, with all the good and bad that that entails. Read Full Review

    The Forever People's good nature is the other half of what carries the book for now. Giffen and Didio have reinvented five pleasant characters, and that does make a difference. Don't get me wrong, we do need a plot, and soon. But I'm willing to wait a little bit longer. For now, the lack of plot makes this a right-down-the-middle average. Here's to a strong surge forward next month, though. Read Full Review

    The ideas inside this book is interesting and the shocker on the first page is cool to see. Unfortunately, this is all buried underneath an incredibly uninteresting script. Maybe over time this book can find its footing and be fun, but this is the New 52 we are talking about and this book is not going to have that time. Read Full Review
