I had a rough morning involving crime, pestilence, and decay, and I couldn't make it through all the exposition when I first tried to read it this afternoon. Perhaps my mind was too busy though.

Re-reading it, eh, it's another example of putting superheroes in a world meant to be more "realistic", making them celebrities with Jerry Springer problems and ungrateful kids, etc., with another Superman analogue of course.

It's not bad, it's just like a lot of other books right now. There's no real hook to the cliffhanger scene because we didn't have any reason to care about that character or what happened to her.

I did find Walter, the guy with psychic powers kind of interesting.

Yeah, it is kinda. And it's thematically similar to other books too, The Boys, Superbia, etc. That's not a bad thing, but it's not by itself a real hook for me anymore.

Quitely was solid but he didn't really blow me away here. I did like the scene with the psychic.
