Points to Millar and Morrison for trying to create a new hero and city from the ground up and try for a Silver age vibe, filtered through a modern sensibility, but that is also it's downfall.
The whole thing reeks of the writers trying too hard.

The humor and goofiness feels forced and while Aztek is an interesting hero/straight man/ stranger in a strange land, but the world he's surrounded by feels over done and doesn't quite have the emotional hook it needs.

After this series got cancelled Morrison brought Aztek into the Justice League and he did work well in a group, so maybe he wasn't a strong enough character to be on his own.
