Library Journal
★ 06/01/2014
This first volume of a brilliant 15-volume series focuses on Walker and Pilgrim, two detectives who are on the "powers" beat in a version of Chicago in which superheroes are the norm but have a way of frequently turning up dead. Filled with plot twists, this series both exalts superheroes and places them in a real-world context. (Ongoing series.) (LJ 12/11)
