Maybe it’s because I’ve never read Project Superpowers before and all I’ve heard is bad things that this book was something of a surprise to me when I sat down to read it. It wasn’t bad, by any stretch of the imagination, but it just didn’t capture me like I had anticipated it. I’m a sucker for Christmas specials, and this felt forced and contrived; but maybe, that’s because I don’t know the characters at all. This issue was essentially a riff on A Christmas Carol, one of my favourite stories of all time; that part, I liked – we get three separate stories that all relate to the grander scheme of things. But whereas the Batman Christmas Special from oh-so-many years ago covered the same ground fantastically well, this fell flat. Again, it might be my problem more than the book’s. The art in here was fairly decent throughout; there were some gorgeous images, but a lot of the time it felt fairly mundane and average. This special has intrigued me when it comes to Project Superpowers enough to constitute a look back at the first story, but if this was an example of what I’ll find there, I’ll be glad to have missed it.

Story: 2 - Average
Art: 3 - Good
