Users who pulled this comic:


  1. I’m looking for more great heroes like the Iron Snail and Pelican Army. If they can keep the insanity up for the long term, I’m in!

  2. I too am excited to see more creative superheroes in this issue. Although it looks like we’re FINALLY getting some story into this book.

  3. I thought that the last issue was great.

  4. There was much to love in the first two issues but I didn’t feel where the story was going. This issue was fantastic, I feel emotionally invested in this story and the characters. This is on its way to being one of the best of the New 52.

  5. I think I’m out.

    • I’m with you. This is not doing it for me. It’s all over the place and I stopped caring halfway through the first issue. Sad, b/c I had high hopes.

  6. This should have been a vertigo book and should only be a limited series. I really can’t see where the story is going to go once China leaves.
