    Seeley again handles the Image-ized backup story featuring Crossjack in all of his 90s superhero glory. It's a tremendous contrast from the present-day story. This has really been a sensational book and it's made for a compelling read that seems to just be scratching at its full potential. Read Full Review

    Local Man #2 is another fantastic issue of a series that's far more than one more deconstruction of superheroes. It delivers a core about celebrity, bias, and the legacy we leave. It's a comic that entertains and has a message underneath that's far too easy to relate to. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Mar 29, 2023

    The art is fantastic and I love the tone and style of both stories. The gritty reality of the main story is perfect and the heightened style of the memories complement each other well. Read Full Review
