    This isn't what you might think it is, and in this case, that's definitely a good thing. Klein and Beem deliver a wonderfully nuanced look at the complex nature of addiction, set in a world where superheroes are a part of everyday life, which was not necessarily what I was expecting when I first picked this comic up. A high-concept ‘heroes and villains' drama grounded in a gripping personal struggle, this is a series that comes highly recommended. Read Full Review
