really liked it
bookshelves: 2011, comics

I was expecting something with more pretension and less plot, so this was a very pleasant surprise. It can be difficult to organize a large cast, but Gerard Way did a good job of picking out the highlights and getting us interested. I'm still not solid on all of the details - I should probably make a name/codename/number/power chart for future reference - but I definitely like what's there. Gabriel Ba's art suits this world perfectly. Planning to continue the series, even though I'm intensely jealous of a creator who can write comics and be a goddamn rock star at the same time.
