  1. Man I am torn about this issue. Wood is one of my favorite writers but I found nothing at all to like in the first issue. Do I give this series a second chance?

    • I’m with you USPUNX. I thought issue 1 would blow me away but it just left me wondering why I picked this up in the first place. Maybe this will be better as a trade?

  2. The previews look a lot better than the last issue. I’m definitely picking this up just on the name of the creators, Wood, Doyle, and Bellaire.

  3. I didn’t get a chance to buy my comics today but I’m still torn on this. Really disliked issue 1. From people who read this, what are your thoughts? Better than issue 1? Worth reading for someone who disliked the first issue?

    • I felt exactly as you did about the first issue, and, sorry to say, I didn’t like this issue much better. I only bought it because my wife is also reading it and wasn’t ready to give up. Her comment on this issue was “I think maybe more will happen in issue #3.” So I take it she wasn’t too impressed by this issue either.

  4. This is definitely a slow burn story, as another “superpower” was revealed this issue, but the mystery is how & why this happened. Its a miniseries, so I’ll finish the run

  5. This story reminds me of Demo, one of Brian Wood’s early works. I felt like this issue picked up the pace and I like this story fine so far.
