Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 10 Up-Superhero comics have a long tradition of team-ups and origin stories, and Morrison pays tribute to both while simultaneously breaking exciting new ground. Selecting a group of lesser-known DC characters, all endowed with something that makes them super, but all debatable as "heroes," he challenges himself to find an extraordinary set of circumstances in which these characters must pull together to become a team. This first volume of the collected comics focuses mostly on background information on the characters, with some overlap between their tales, hinting at future connections. Readers will enjoy the erratic and creative nature of the plots, including everything from a Western posse rounded up to defeat a giant spider to subway pirates terrifying New York City. The art is consistently strong and well framed, with excellent coloration and great lettering. However, the book as a whole is a bit overwhelming and confusing even for seasoned comics readers, and would probably have fairly limited appeal to teens. Course language, brief sex and nudity, and horrific violence will make this a dicey choice for most school libraries.-Dawn Rutherford, King County Library System, Bellevue, WA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
