The plot deepens and thickens and grows strange in author Jonathan Lethem's labor-of-love retelling of the legend of Omega the Unknown, the noble and enigmatic superhero from another world, and Titus Alexander Island, the earthly teenager lucky -- or is it unlucky? -- enough to find himself under the wing of this uncanny protector.

    So far this series succeeds best when it focuses on young Alex and his struggle to adapt to his new family life. I don't care so much about his supposed alter ego, Omega. The series has a very "coming of age" feel, partially because of Farel Dalrymple's art. Every page feels ripped straight from a children's storybook (albeit one filtered through the mind of a cynical adult). It's an effective look all around. If only the story weren't guilty of covering too many bases. Lethem is a talented enough writer that I'm sure he'll have plenty of offers coming his way. There's no need to mold every one of his ideas into one story. Read Full Review
