Vol 1 (issues 1-4) is $9.99
issue #5 is 99 cents
for ~$11 you get five of the most bad ass comics I have read since the "twist" in the early Invincible TBS!
First of all, I like Mark Waid. I liked his Legion of Super Heroes, his X books, hell, I don't know of a Waid book I dislike, so when I went to the LCS today (hoping they had my green lantern shirt in..they didn't) and saw an affordable trade and a 99 cent book, well the Jew in me said "Oy! Get these!" and in now way was I disappointed.
I don't know if this makes it to my pull or I wait for trade, but read this book.
I like X-Books and continuity and shared universes, but every time I see people bitching that super hero books are stuck in a loop, that they are stagnant I want to slap them in the head and tell the to actually look for something new. This is 2009's RU's choice for "Something New"
again, $11 will get you 5 issues (and that assumes you get charged full price for trades at your LCS) what the bloody hell do you have to lose....other than I guess $11?
