THE MOVEMENT #1

We are faceless. We are limitless. We see all. And we do not forgive.

Who defends the powerless against the GREEDY and the CORRUPT? Who protects the homeless and poverty-stricken from those who would PREY upon them in the DARK OF NIGHT?

When those who are sworn to protect us abuse their power, when toxic government calls down super-human lackeys to force order upon the populace…finally, there is a force, a citizen’s army, to push order BACK.

Let those who abuse the system know this as well: We have our OWN super humans now. They are not afraid of your badges or Leagues. And they will not be SILENCED.

We are your neighbors. We are your co-workers. And we are your children.

  1. I have some interest in this, but I am not a fan of FEW II’s art, and I just dropped Batgirl because I got tired of Gail Simone’s clunky writing. She was so good on Secret Six, I don’t know what happened. So I have low hopes here.

  2. Is this going to be about a bunch of 15 year old who hack the Justice League website from their moms computer in the basement?

  3. Please just bring back Secret Six.

  4. Needs more Catman but I’m in

  5. It’s an incredibly slow week for me (only 2 books on the pull) so I’ll give this a try. The concept only interests me slightly but at least DC is trying new stuff.

  6. I’m going to give this a try. My inner-child-rebel might like this.

  7. Ehh…

    What an unlikeable issue. Visually muddy and not a single character (cop or kid) comes across as anything other the unpleasant and humourless. I’m hoping Simone can turn this Secret Six diehard into a Movement fan by the end of the arc, otherwise i’ll be dropping it.

    Though i did like the Messenger Rat:)

  8. This was just okay for me. I’m not in any hurry to read the next issue.

  9. I cant stand those 99 per centers and I really did not like this. I know its just the 1st issue but i hated the characters. I’m a Gail Simone fan but I’ll wait for her next project hopefully Catman is in it.

    • So you’re a fan of the 1 percent?

      Those numbers are really off – the vast majority of us aren’t 99 or 1 percent – so the math is flawed, but the concept is correct – and has been going on for thousands of years. Life is only as fair as we make it.

    • Is there anything more inherently wrong with hating the 99% than there is with those that hate the 1%?

      I’d imagine he’s not a fan of those that make an issue and divide people into such groups, but even if it’s just a general hate for the 99%, no sweat off my sack.

  10. Nobody was likable in this book. I thought the honest police captain would have a place among the “heroes” but nope, if you’re official law enforcement, you’re trash. Plus the art was super loose and ugly. You have one more issue, Movement, only because of Gail Simone.

  11. Meh. 3/5

  12. It’s rare when I actually skim a comic book. Heck, it’s not as if there’s much of a time commitment to read a standard issue cover to cover.

    Began skimming this one.

    Dropped.

    I thought it was really good and don’t really get why the characters are getting so much hate. Apart from Katharsis this is the first time I’d seen any of these characters and liked all of “The Movement” gang. Early fave is Tremor. Art was okay but nothing amazing. Easily another one to add to my pull list.

  14. Original, relevant, and just plain cool first issue. Very much looking forward to issue 2.
