During the original tale told in Joe Hill's The Cape, our protagonist-turned-antisocial antagonist Eric disappeared for three days as he got comfortable with his new abilities? Where did he go? What did he do? And more importantly, who died during this period? The original creators return to tell a hyper-detailed and hyper-grim story of this oh-sol-lost period....

    I read the original series and loved it, and I have good feeling about the start of this series. If you haven't read the original, do so asap. You'll see why this series was nominated for an Eisner, and it'll give you a better feel for Eric as a character. The original team returns on the series so be prepared to be amazed again. I definitely recommend picking up this issue, and the first series can be read for free with a trial subscription on Comixology Unlimited, so no excuses not to be caught up. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jul 8, 2018

    This is an odd story. One issue down and there's no real reason to care about the protagonist or his issues. The pacing is slow and it doesn't really set anything up. Art is muddy which I don't care for. Hopefully, this picks up soon and gets the creepy mystery vibe it is trying for. Read Full Review
