    ALPHA: BIG TIME has been a pleasant surprise. It shouldn't really have been a surprise how much I liked this since Josh Fialkov was the writer. The idea of taking a character most readers couldn't really stand and center a miniseries around him was remarkable. The fact that Fialkov made us care so much and packed so much story and emotion into this series is a testament to his writing. With this being the final issue, you owe it to yourself to read this entire series. It's refreshing to see a different sort of teenage superhero story. Nuno Plati's art added another layer to Fialkov's storytelling. It's unfortunate that this is the end. Hopefully we'll get to see more on the horrific circumstances Fialkov has unleashed.

    The standout feature of this book is the voice that Fialkov gives Alpha. It's truly unique amongst all of the superhero books out there, which is saying something. He's pretty blunt about how he feels about his responsibilities and his priorities aren't exactly properly in line, but he's all the more endearing because of it. As the title intends, Fialkov escalates Alpha to the big time, and he's here to stay. Read Full Review
