    If one needed a solid foundation to step foot into the Valiant universe, Vita Ayala just handed you four issues perfect for just that. Something intriguing without being overwhelming and familiar to older fans like myself without becoming stale. Besides when's the last time we got handed a strong independent black woman who didn't need no man in her own book that wasn't Storm? Bottom line Livewire is a solid series that already shows great promise and the potential to become just as synonymous with the name "Valiant" as Ninjak, Bloodshot or X-O Manowar. Read Full Review

    At the core of Amanda's internal conflict is an unanswerable query that too many comics/heroes/universes tend to simply take for granted. Do the needs of the many ALWAYS outweigh the needs of the few? Most heroes " most comic book creators tend to answer "yes" to this query " and in many cases this is a matter of fact reality of the superhero genre. But Vita Ayala and company dare to challenge this accepted and often unquestioned assumption. You might be surprised at where Livewire ends up in her thinking on this matter and her experiences might change your thinking on it too. But there is no mistaking that this is a unique and uniquely spectacular book about the challenges of being the most wanted and the most powerful superhero in the world. Read Full Review

    Livewire #4 takes a bit of a stumble along the way, but it's still worth reading. So far, this book is the exception to the rule when it comes to the quality of the series, and as such I'm hopeful for a return to form with the next issue. Read Full Review
