There's really not much plot at all, and it's mostly interesting as a historical artefact, being a speculation of space travel before actual space travel ever happened. Still, the enthusiasm and optimism (though sadly misplaced, as history has shown)...more

Honestly, it was just adequate for me. It really does bug me when protagonists make careless, stupid decisions. Supposedly because he is an everyman, the main character does just that. The motorcycle thing was rather misleading, because it feels like...more

So tightly plotted, moves so quickly, yet makes you feel so horrible about what happens to characters you care about that you don't really want to read further in case worse happens to them. I was so torn. But it's good writing, for sure.

Misleading title aside, this is a fun adventure tale. I'm not quite used to Snyder operating in fun mode, though I wish there was a bit more room to develop things here. The artwork was great, very pulpy.

An almost-perfect teen superhero comic. Just a tad too much repetitive teen angst (a little unavoidable in a monthly, unfortunately), and art can be a little inconsistent (although there's no doubt Bagley was working his ass off) - even Peter looks d...more
