    I was excited to pick this up this week, I’m a fan of Kid Cudi and Kyle Higgins, and the cover alone is awesome. The writing is solid and has me hooked, but the artwork carries this book to another level.

    Good start, now go somewhere with it.

    Marco Locati's art is moody, and atmospheric. There's a sketchy quality to it that reminds me a bit of Daniel Warren Johnson. He's great at using expression and body language to convery emotion. The coloring is excellent too. If the art has a weakness, it's when the action starts. I've read the book a few times, and I'm still not sure what happened at the protest. Not a deal breaker.

    The story is just beginning, so what we mainly get is character work - and it's good. I'm here for at least the next few issues. Show me something I haven't seen before.

    If you liked Invincible, Radiant Black, or the current Fantastic Four, you'll probably like this.
