Upon picking up the first two issues, I instinctively thought….. Mojo World from the mutant side of Marvel. While the idea may have some narrative (perhaps) on greedy media networks, this comic brings new and exciting ideas to the beaten horse that is televised gladiator fights. Brian Hitch fits the genre perfectly with his crisp-yet-chaotic style that portrays the fun and also immediate danger to befall the young combatants. The story pulls us into instantly liking the main character, Tommy Watts.
The narrative in the first issue was almost 100% Tommy and very little characterization of other characters. Instantly fixed in this issue, we get a better look at the super-team led by Quarterback, Tommy’s love interest, and more corporate media/government shenanigans.
With the second installment, we delve a bit deeper into the culture of the “Power Generation” and there is a nice twist at the end. This comic is well worth the money I personally can’t wait for more.
