I had been surprised to find that Marvel had bought the CrossGen comics titles. Surprised and pleased. I had followed Simon and Emma's adventures back then and I had high hopes for their continuation. Marvel made a great decision in not trying to revise the characters or the world they lived in too much. It was like this portion of the CrossGen universe continued within the pages without ever stopping. I think that Mark Waid did a great job with the story so that new readers just picking up the book would not be lost and old fans would be pleased with the new mystery.

The only gripe I had was that after buying the first three issues, issue #4 was no where to be found. I had to buy the trade paperback to finish the story. My guess as to the reason for this, was that the comic was not selling well and they decided just to forgo the last issue in favor of the trade.
