It is a excellent adaptation. It's very different though. The original comic story is simply better. They've had to make various changes for modern audiences. Thankfully, none of said changes warp it into something completely different from the comic. I'm loving both. Hopefully you do too!

Avanvolk - Apr 24, 2024 (edited)

Yeah so far the only differences I've noticed the show made are the pacing/placement of certain events chronologically, an increased focus on the demon detective, and they made William gay and Amber black. I am thankful for having watched some of the show though, because hearing J.K. Simmons' voice in my head whenever I read Omni-Man's lines honestly elevates my reading experience lol

Yep, just about the biggest insult I can use for a comic while keeping the language clean for the kids reading out there. You can find a lot of Russell's work there because he inserts his crazy leftist views into established characters.
