    As a narrative, The Life and Times of Savior 28 seems to be fiction with the purpose of commenting on recent politics, as well as being (perhaps) a parable about the destructive nature of answering violence with ever increasing violence. As for the first issue, well, I was huge fan of DeMatteis because of comic books like Moonshadow and Dr. Strange: Into Shamballa (Marvel Graphic Novel #23). Here, I enjoyed how DeMatteis wrote Dennis McNultys narration, which gives this comic book the feel of a biographical novel, and sets a nice conspiratorial, dark tone for the narrative. However, this first issue is much too much overview and not enough detail, which keeps this first issue from standing out as something exceptional. Read Full Review
