This book was okay. I think I might be getting burned out on prose super-hero universes that start a whole new setting for themselves and then play out some kind of similar-to-the-comics saga. This one is a little more literary than most of them, sometimes a little too much so. There are a dozen or so pages of black and white comic art that look nice, and the central plot works pretty well, but comics readers probably will recognize it. A couple of the characters are neat -- most of them are obviously based on some kind of DC or Marvel hero but the twists in them are often original (oh, and Devil Girl wasn't really based on any one else I recognized).

Good book if you like supers stories and don't think you've already read too many.
