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.

So typical Millar work.

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.
