Sorry, I wasn't able to get a copy of this. I should be up for the next one though.

The back matter works much like the back matter in Watchmen. It is a bit of the history of the world the book is set in and works to tie together some of the disparate threads you mention in the review. The title of the book also speaks to those concerns.


Enjoyed your write up too. Nowhere Men is definitely worth a read, it's just a shame that it feels like about 8 years since the most recent issue came out. Watchmen may have started/popularized the back matter trend, but I think once you read Nowhere Men you'll see how close it is to this book - Watchmen was probably what influenced Nowhere Men, but Nowhere Men was what influenced this IMO.

Definitely agree re: Hickman, too. I don't mind homage at all, as long as the writer is able to put a spin on it so it doesn't come off as derivative fan-fiction.

Anyone go back for #2? Pretty good follow-up issue, really liking where this seems to be going. Again, only comment would be that the art is not great, but it mostly serves its purpose - sometimes I have trouble telling characters apart and need to flick back to verify.

I might be the only person still reading this, but after #3 it feels like it's at the point where it's either about to get very good, or very run-of-the-mill.

Let us know, so I can decide whether or not to keep it in mind when it is collected.
