    Theres so much to explore in Summit, that as a book it almost feels like a fusion reactor ready to blow in itself. My want is simply more time, more space dedicated to just about everything. Read Full Review

    Summit still remains my favorite of the Catalyst Prime universe. It has great pacing and Val is a relatable hero to follow. My only knock against the book is that the story just isn't that fresh and my hope is to see some more crossover as these books develop. It is the moments of action that feel the most forced on the writing front. The big action of this comic was a superhero fighting two guys with guns in the Jungle, and I would like to see more scale and distinction to powers. Writing about Val as a superhero comes second to Val and the shadowy organization she is up against, or the ghost that haunts her, or the drama of why she should trust no one. I would love to see Amy Chu write a spy comic. Catalyst Prime as a universe is not quite ready to go up against Valiant, Marvel, and DC yet but the potential is there and Summit is not a bad comic jump in with. Summit and Noble are of two extremes. Noble fully embraces actions but never slows to build up the tension and Summit struggles with action but the actual build and story is really good.

    If you are already on board with this book then pick it up and support an indie company with a lot potential.
