    It’s my own fault I thought I was clever picking this up cheap in hardback I thought it was a self contained Bendis book that I might enjoy I had no idea it was just the first five issues of an abandoned series with little coherence and no resolution Bit of a waste of their talent and my time

  2. Anthony Anthony says:

    I wonder how Bendis felt when he watched the movie CHRONICLE because this is very similar Except the powers are discovered through science and not what's most likely extra terrestrial purposes But it's Bendis and Bagley doing a story about young people discovering powers while also dealing with being young so there are some small similarities with Ultimate Spider manI don't know what it is with Bendis though I just seem to enjoy his Marvel work than his creator owned stuff? I love Scarlet which is probably my favourite creator owned thing by him and Takio is cool and his old crime stuff is fun to look at and read But his creator owned stuff just seems to be missing something for me There's also the fact that they're uite often plagued with delays but I don't like including that on Goodreads reviews since the review should be about the complete storycollection It's just hard not to think about when I'm reading And sometimes it's just not worth the wait

  3. Mike Mike says:

    Such an easy breezy fast moving read Even though so little is actually explained or maybe because of it this just turns pages so damned fast It's a perfect Sunday with a steaming cup kind of read Bagley is one of the artists from Bendis' incredible run on Ultimate Spider Man and this book can't help but feel like a side chapter from that incredible collaboration But what I don't uite get out of this is a sense of the characters through their facial expressions Everyone seems to look a little muted like those loose drawings never uite come into focus so you lose the ability to really clarify what everyone is thinking or feeling The story of geniuses that somehow invent superpowers is a neat angle to explore but is almost a complete aside to the core story They're treated as any curiosity and while the authorities are scared and skeptical it's not like they would proceed any differently in any police procedural In fact as much as I've enjoyed Bendis in the past as joyously as I have this did as little for me as it did for many of my GoodReads compatriotsIt's not that I don't care for these characters though they were pretty bland I at least didn't want to see them fry for doing so little But there were few surprises as there was no previously stark or uniue behaviour against which to surprise me Stock TV teledrama characters acting out the usual how do we hide this from the government?I can see that Bendis is looking to crank this up a notch slowly encircle the kids with corporate sharks who will make any gubmint authority look like child's play and this is the only reason to give this series another chance whenever Bendis Bagley can sueeze out another handful of issues I am all in if they can really illustrate the insidiously sociopathic nature of corporate conglomerates as long as it doesn't end up looking like a couple of bad seeds It'll make me a helluva lot happier if after taking down the first few evil powermongers everyone realizes that the next ten to replace them are even worse and there's no stopping the endlessly voracious and silently single minded beast

    I am really really sorry I can tell Mark Bagley is a nice guy and he consistently puts out an amazing amount of work but I feel like his work is not very dynamic The characters blend together they are the euivalent of template characters you can build upon in game apps there just really isn't anything very interesting about his art in this book at all Why am I talking about art so much when I normally focus on the writing in a comic book trade? Well it's because I am getting sick of hearing myself say that Bendis stretches out a story that could be told in one or two issues into a six issue trade The only thing that works in here is the attempt at making the idea of super powers seem like something people in the real world would work on achieving

  5. estar* estar* says:

    Maybe it's a slow burn but I couldn't get into it Might check out volumes on Bendis' rep alone

  6. Paxton Holley Paxton Holley says:

    Brilliant students discover a way to give themselves superpowers Cool idea meh execution

  7. Jeremy Randall Jeremy Randall says:

    annoying that it kind of just ends It doesn't really complete But nice art great tension G`reat idea

  8. ***Dave Hill ***Dave Hill says:

    When some genius college students figure out how to create super powers they learn a couple of lessons absolute power corrupts absolute you can have too much of a good thing and you won't know who to trust Friends betray friends people go nuts the government wants to know and it all goes pear shaped awfully fastBendis' writing is good though not great it's a bit too earnest in places missing its normal wit Mark Bagley is a fine artist as always but this almost needs the realism of someone like Maleev to make it really zingNo regrets reading it and I'll read if and whenThe hardcover contains issues 1 5 plus a lot of backup material MAY 2020 UPDATE Just these five issues came out; 6 and 7 were solicited but never arrived It's not clear what direction Bendis intended to go absolute power corrupting absolutely the threat of big government or business how teenagers shouldn't be experimenting on themselves or what On reread the dialog is pretty good as expected folk talk like old friends but even after five issues I don't have a good feel for any of the characters even the centerpiece PoV character Albert Largely enjoyable but ultimately frustrating

  9. Kate Reads Kate Reads says:

    This book shows a highly likely account of what would happen if or perhaps I should say when? a group of people found a way to give people superpowers on purpose even if they weren't sure what those powers might be or how they might work My overall reaction to this was Cool story bro the art is appealing and expressive and the plot is intriguing but I'm not really excited about reading of it I feel like I need to read of it to get attached to these characters The plot explodes in this volume but before I get a chance to really invest and care about what happens to the people involved which is a flaw of many comicserial stories because you have to get the reader invested in such a short amount of time I want to love several of these characters though I just don't yet mostly because I don't know them well enough at this point

  10. Keith Keith says:

    A fast page turner so fast in fact I'd have been disappointed if I had purchased this book with my own cash I checked it out from the library It was over in a flash Some of the dialogue includes coarse language but not excessively so What's here is entertaining but there's not a lot of meat on the bone College geniuses band together to invent superpowers through scientific means The scheme works but one of the kids doses himself and the results are unstable Bagley's art is utilized well to provide bright young faces for this new cast of characters The book ends with a cliffhanger so don't expect much resolution
