A very nice comic. The artwork is fine, nothing particularly special, but JMS’s writing is top-notch here. He constructs an interesting premise and a wide array of characters who have special powers caused by a mysterious event a couple of decades ago. Then he mixes it all up with a murder mystery and conspiracy. It makes for compelling reading. I especially like the way that JMS handled the fates of certain of the lesser-powered characters – most comics only focus on the supers who have powers useful for combat – it’s nice to see that some people know that super strength != invulnerability != immobility.
Anyhow, the arc of the first 8 issues is excellent, and I’m left slavering for more.
