  1. I really enjoyed last issue.  I love the real world aspect.

  2. I was skeptical that this would just be a chance to cash in on Kirby’s name. And, sure, to some extent it is that… but I was immediately grabbed by the premise and have high hopes. (I loved learning that Kirby really had suggested sending superhero pictures of our species on the Pioneer space probe!)

  3. I’m really liking this so far…the 0 issue didn’t wow me in terms of story, but the art’s been breathtaking in 0 and 1 and the story has much improved.  Surprised more people aren’t picking this up!

  4. @shiveringking8, i wish i could keep adding new books to my pull list.  Yet another 4 dollar book. 

  5. Dammit … should have seen this coming …

    I’m giving Genesis a shot, but am definitely not planning to start buying another family of books. Alex Ross is no Jack Kirby … If you want proof just read Project Superpowers.

  6. Alot going on in this issue, but I really liked the feeling of being in on the ground floor of a universe being born.  The character designs are a little dated, which is to be expected, but it gives it that old school cred.  I had a lot of fun with this issue.
