I’m going to try to keep this review as balanced as I can, as I believe there is something for everyone in each comic.

The basic synopsis of these books is that we are in a world of highborn and Monsters ..and they are hiding in plain sight. Governments of the world have enlisted their own highborn to police their own. This is their story…..

The art was not bad. I felt it got better in the second issue for some reason. I did notice in some of the panels that the art(facial expressions) didn’t really match up with the dialogue that was associated with it. The women are drawn busty and beautiful, so if you enjoy that type of art you might want to pick up this book. I did notice the breasts changed sizes sometimes from panel to panel which struck me as odd(story had 3/4 artists which might explain that)

The writing left a bit to be desired to me. I saw a few grammatical errors that should have been caught in proofreading and editing. We all make errors(I’m sure I have here)but these I felt were obvious. Some of the cursing seemed out of place for the situation and characters involved. Almost seemed some of it was cursing for the sake of cursing.

Part of this to me is attributed to “The Cloak Rule”. I don’t think I’ve ever heard a superhero or villain with a cloak “Shit talk”(Maybe  Spawn?) as part of their dialogue. It just looks very much out of place. The villain in question however did have a cool name in “Half Euro”

The storyline itself was not too badly developed, but I felt the characters were written a bit generically and I could not really relate to any of them.

I doubt I’ll read anymore of this series but as I said, the second issue seemed marginally better so it may pick up. They certainly can draw the female form quite heartily.
