  1. The previews of this book look really promising.

    • Yeah, I’m defiantly going go check this out and get a flavour for it.

      I’m getting a little tired of the same-old of some comics, but this is one of the image books that has me excited this year.

  2. This looks ridiculous.

    I’m on board!

  3. 32 pages at $2.99 with Keatinge at the helm-Make mine Image…Loved want he did with Glory, this should be equally great.

  4. May just drop grifter and start reading this.

  5. Watchmen for the kick-ass generation, sounds good to me. I’m also happy that local bay area boy makes good!

  6. What a disappointment. I should never have broken my rule about buying comics with substandard art.

  7. This was really kind of ‘meh’. Not good, not bad. Just ‘meh’.

  8. I enjoyed this! Did anyone notice that the art on the first few pages was kind of pixellated? Like it was done at a smaller size and then enlarged just a tiny bit too much?

    For what it’s worth, I wrote and directed a 10-part short video serial several years ago that has some similarities to the inciting incident at the end of this issue, so I’m particularly interested to see how this book approaches the concept.

    If anyone is intrigued and has about 30 minutes to kill on a fun – but flawed – sci-fi serial, have a look: http://vimeo.com/album/1863939.

  9. This is the most mediocre book I think I’ve ever read. Boring, uneven, bad dialogue, every trope ever from every superhero comic. One and done.

  10. Flashgordon23 (@flashgordon23) says:

    I want to like this book, but it was kinda boring.. Hope the second issue is better

  11. Can’t say that I’m a fan. The first few pages of pixelated art didn’t help, but I echo the feeling that it was uneven and uninteresting. Wonder if I can get anything for it on ebay/amazon.

  12. I loved, loved, loved Hell Yeah #1. I attended a signing by Andre Syzmanowicz and ended up reading issue 1 multiple times while waiting on line. I thought the art was really good. I like how detailed Syzmanowicz’s characters’ facial expressions are. I thought that really added to the story. I’ll definitely be back for issue 2. This might be my POTW.

    • I didn’t make it POTW, but I’d say I’m closer to this view than the others on this thread. I really liked the artwork, and the story’s got some characters I’m already interested in. I’ll be back for issue #2.

    • I really enjoyed this too. I feel like I’ve been in the minority lately, I like Greg Land’s art, I liked Bobillo on FF, and now this.

  13. In some parts I thought the art was actually pretty decent. In other parts, the art looked horrible. Story wise, there was absolutely nothing in this issue that made me want to read more. I wish I hadn’t added this to my pull list at my LCS. Now I’m stuck buying at least the next 2 issues.

  14. The story was interesting enough to get me back for at least one more. There are lots of questions that I want to see answered, so they have me for now. I liked some of the ideas, like how the appearance of these super heroes wiped out most forms of sports and movies. Hopefully we’ll get more examples of how this affected society.
