Five artificial teens with superpowers are created as corporate assets – but may prove to have minds of their own! There are hints of something here, but Mark Evanier and Will Meugniot’s indie superhero book never quite connects during this lackluster debut outing.
Duke “Destroyer” Duck travels across nega-space to avenge the death of The Little Guy at the hands of Godcorp, Ltd. Steve Gerber + Jack Kirby + Righteous Anger = A pretty solid debut issue. (All this, plus the first appearance of Groo the Wanderer, too!)
Broadcast journalist Jon Athens wallows in an emotional funk as he covers a local political event involving The Masked Man. B.C. Boyer’s strong visual storytelling can’t save this debut issue’s subpar script.
