The plot thickens as we find out more and more about the world that Jonathan Ross has created, which is actually pretty original and not as derivative as a lot of people thought. Yes there are elements of X-Men here, but this title is, in my opinion at least, looking at superheroes from a new angle. The idea of superheroes being both a media entity and struggling not to become part of the military industrial complex is a strong one, and it’s going to be fascinating to see the David Tennant lookalike try and resist militarisation. Of course, alongside the big picture stuff is the more immediate story of Tommy and his newfound powers, which nobody seems to have any idea about. The mystery surrounding him continues to fascinate. I also liked that we got a bit of romance, and the AAesque meeting was pretty funny. There’s even more subplots with the grumblings from Quarterback, and I haven’t even mentioned the shocking revelation about Tommy’s dead brother! This book is dense, and it’s well worth a read. Bryan Hitch’s art continues to be just as good as his old stuff too, I think working on a creator-owned property has re-energised him somewhat.
