A bunch of unlikeable characters thrown into a pretty uncompelling scenario. The art is solid but the story didn’t hook me.

Blackout #1 (Dark Horse)
Pretty interesting first issue. The story feels disjointed but it’s a solid first issue. I can’t say it’s a must read, but it’s not a bad read.

I loved this more than I thought I would. The art is great, the writing is great. This was great.

Iron Patriot #1 (Marvel)
Good first issue. Not great. The art is ok, but nothing special. The first issue felt rehashed and uninspired.
