This first volume left me feeling very pleased and very upset. Pleased because it was actually very well written, and brought back some of the joy I had as a kid when reading super hero books. That enjoyment in simple heroics doesn’t happen much these days as more and more books become darker and foreboding, with stories full of dread and revenge and less and less in the way of heroics. This book pulled out the heroics, mixed in some interesting complexity, and in the end left me hanging on the knife edge of a cliff hanger, thus the reason for being very upset. This is the first volume in a new series, and since it is compiled from a monthly book I suspect that I will have at least six months or more wait time for the next volume. I do not wait patiently when dealing with cliff hangers.
