Lemire is drawing on a lot of classic Legion of Super-Heroes ideas here while also tying things in with his own universe. While the art is serviceable, I was hoping for something a little stronger in the layouts, maybe creating a strong parallel between the idealistic future-past and the dystopian future-present.

Still, its giving me my future space heroes fix, can't ask for much else.

Amazing world building, a complex protagonist, and just enough of that Spurrier WTF that the world needs more of. The art captures this running down post-apoc fantasy world perfectly. The extra length of this first issue really makes the $4 cover price worth it for once. 20 pages for $4 is always a hard sell, meaning sadly, as much as I love this first issue. I'll likely be waiting for digital pri more

First a note, I don't like Rob Liefeld's comic work. I hear he's generally a great guy, he's contribution to the indie comic revolution can't be understated, and I hear regardless of everything else, he's a workhorse. But I am not a fan.

I bought this issue, and plan to buy the next two, based on Michel Fiffe's name alone. Much like how I got into Brandon Graham's Prophet, Erik Larsen's more

A little disappointed this series has gone for a renumber (though the total series issue number appears to be preserved in the in-side front cover, so maybe it will resume after this series.

This series should feel like so much more. But there's a stilted and haphazard quality to presentation that just makes it lose any excitement the idea might have had. The art is muddy and dark, though I appreciate it not really trying to do actor likenesses.

Really wish it was better.
