Cool twist to common hero origins. I highly recommend checking this book out then look up lock and key also by joe hill.

This is the subtle kind of creepy. The sort where at first it doesn't look like a thriller at all until the end. It left me a little uneasy but I will definitely be reading more of this author. Note: This is a short story so please don't complain it was to short.

An interesting look into psychosis with a superhero slant. What seemed like one story left turns into a completely different one that gets very dark very quickly. The book is a quick read and has a couple strange out of place scenes that are too "comic booky" but overall its decent read that is actually sad.

Good story with a very surprising end ! Would recommend it

This was easily the worst comic I read last year. The characters are shallow, the plot is pathetic, and all in all the story feels as though an angry  14 year old boy wrote the whole story. I'd give it a 0/5 if I could. Save your money!
