    Comics Bulletin - Ray Tate Feb 4, 2008

    The strange thing about is Project Superpowers is that I didn't just feel something for one character. I felt something for all of them. I never read a single adventure with the Flame and Flame Girl, yet I find him potent and she sweet and caring. I know that the original Daredevil was supposed to be hot stuff back in the day, but I never had the opportunity to read a single story with him in it, yet damned if he doesn't look and act cool in these pages. If the Checkteeninfinitypackofjustice went away tomorrow I wouldn't care, but Samson's fate affected me. If Booster Gold were drawn, quartered and disemboweled, I'd shed few tears. Why then does it matter to me if the lives of Kitten, Miss Masque and the Red Arrow are threatened? It's in the writing. It's in the art. These characters may be also-rans to Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, but the individuals involved with the series love them. They revere them.

    Like Marvel's new series, The Twelve, Project Superpowers shines a new light on old characters, giving them a more dark and interesting modern spin. Shame on me for underestimating Alex Ross and Jim Krueger. Don't be fooled by the price tag on this book, you get a full 20+ pages of fantastic story and beautiful art. Easily the most bang you'll get for your buck this week. Read Full Review

    Project Super Powers #0 was an absolute treat to read. Krueger and Ross offer up a deliciously meaty read that will certainly appeal to readers who enjoy more mature and intricate comic books. Obviously, if you just don't like Ross or Krueger then you probably won't enjoy this issue. However, to everyone else I definitely urge you to run out to your local comic book shop and give this title a try. Read Full Review

    Well, late to the party I may be, but better late than never, and in the case of this comic, that is definitely true. I was a little trepidatious about getting this given the golden age characters: my concern born out of the fact that generally the simpler plots and general tone of positivity that I associate with the golden and silver ages not really being my cup of tea. How wrong I was to be uncertain, and how right I was to give it a go. While the superheroes within may be from decades ago, they are interesting characters who display depth and personality. The tone too is anything but light and breezy: there is a real sense of menace and character motivation is meaningful. Add to this a plot that suggests at much greater complexity than more
