  1. So psyched about this!  Busiek, Ross, and Kirby!!!!

  2. I forgot about this book!

    If my shop has a copy I’ll definitely pick it up. Busiek, Ross, and Kirby? What could go wrong here? 

  3. Where is Vinny Colleta when you need him?

  4. This looks cool for a buck.

    This image from Jackson Herbert’s deviantart page is what sold me. 

  5. I might give it a shot

  6. Who is this Kirby guy?

  7. @AmirCat  I think he made some candy bar called Krackle.

  8. @AmirCat  This joke always makes me laugh!  Good one!

  9. @pyynk  Haha!  Good one too!

  10. after reading it I am now excited for this series

  11. Yeah I figured this was going to be a trainwreck, but this was a great $1 issue and introduction. Story will probably still end up being hokey but I’m pretty stoked now

  12. I loved this book. So far it’s my pick of the week. I have 6 more comics to go though. It was cheap ($1), awesome art, great premise and KIRBY!!!! What can be better?

  13. Say Kirby, and say no more.

  14. I enjoyed this zero issue, but am still deciding whether to jump on the run. Project Superpowers was another Dynamite character revival project and the meta-arc never really jelled in my opinion. Trying to give panel time to such a huge cast of characters made the finished product way too convoluted. And the quality of the artwork in that series was unpredictable. I’m on board for issue #1. Maybe it will give a better feel.
