Going into this book, I was not sure what to expect. I had never heard of DV8 till I read DMZ #50, but I was interested to see Brian Wood writing a comic about Superhuman beings, outside of Demo and Generation X (<- only found that out today). The set up and layout of the story is pretty good, though I felt Wood didn’t spend enough time introducing the cast but then again, that could just be for the first issue.
The story is told though Gem Antonelli A.k.a. Copycat as she recount the event that happened to her and her dysfunctional team on a unknown world to some unseen listener(s). Which is a good way to start a story for those like me who don’t know anything about the DV8.

Rebekah Isaacs has a nice and fitting art style for the story, not too flashing for most super human books and not to dark show them as anti-heroes. Though there was a lot of uneeded bleed over panels, that made reading some moments feel awkward. But that is just me being nit-picky.

Other then that, this was a pretty good. I’m interested in checking out the next issue.

  1. i’ll check out wikipedia if you want to know more about the characters.


    Sounds good though, i’ll check it out when i go to the store 

  2. yeah I did that the night before, but even with that it seem like it was lacking, I guess they figured more the fan from the old comics would be picking this up.
