    A mixed bag!

    The New 52 brings with it this universe spanning book that is supposed to spotlight characters not big enough for the own books. The first storyline starred Deadman and was very good. It was spiritual, philosophical, intriguing, and had enough action to keep things going. Deadman is someone I'm not terribly familiar with so I'm not sure how he changed in the New 52, but this version is very interesting. I enjoyed him and his take on the world. The art by Bernard Chang was very good and reminded by of J.H. Williams at times with the unique panel layout. The individual covers by Ryan Sook were phenomenal! Truly fantastic! The problem with the book overall was the second story starring the Challengers Of The Unknown. To be honest it was terrible. The premise is fine but the execution was beyond bad. The plot, dialogue, and actions of the characters were just really bad. It was painful to read. The art by Jerry Ordway was fine but nothing special. That's why overall, the collection is just okay. If the two stories are ever released separately, skip the Challengers tale.

    Deadman great, Challengers not so much

    The first half of this graphic novel is great and gives a solid backstory to Deadman while also keeping the plot interesting. Challengers of the unknown could be scrapped though. Didn't even finish reading their story.
