    If you are looking are a cathartic read to cleanse your palate I would highly recommend this book. The future of this book will hinge on what route the series as whole is going to take. I hope it takes the right one as there is an incredible amount of potential here. Read Full Review

    I will give the story credit for moving away from the now normal superhero origin story where the powers are gained by an accident. I look forward to seeing where our over inflated ego of a hero goes to next and what the next issue has for us. Read Full Review

    "Demi-God" #1 fails to be a compelling first issues for a series that clearly has a lot of ideas. Perhaps there is more under the hood that readers will appreciate more on future issues, but here those expectations fall short. Read Full Review

    To put it nicely, Demi-God is just bad. Read Full Review

    I didn't like it. Maybe the overfull assurance of the characters. Maybe some too common part with the sad nerd not good for girl nor for fighting. And the fact the right bat was in the store, too cheap.

    Cover - I chose the cover with the car & the chick. 1/2
    Story - Marz disappointed me. After all he was the writer on my favorite green Lantern. 1/3
    Arts - That do the job and more, but that seem to show all the error in the writing. 2/3
    Feeling - I will not go further. 0/2
