Ok, just finished and it’s time to put down my thoughts!
I’ve been wanting to start this series for a while, and this was a good prompt to do so. In addition to the rebirth issue and the first 4, I read the 4 One shots and those were really really really good (my favorites probably being atom and killer frost). All of this was really good, I enjoyed the story so so so much, it kept me entertained consistently. I knew of the extremists for a tiny bit before reading this, but this was my first time reading much of them (except Havoc, I’ve read a little bit with him before).
Doctor Doom Havoc was great, and I really enjoyed Dream slayer, he was really intriguing and interesting to me
Another thing that made this book so enjoyable was the art. Each issue, it was just astounding. I especially liked how in some, there were consultant movement in the whole
Like, to use Lobo for two examples, these panels
You have the main focus (usually those speaking and having a general impact on the plot at that moment) and then you also have Lobo doing something separate… I don’t know if I’m explaining this well, but I just like how there are all these moving pieces that make it an active world…
Another good example is this
Also, those splash pages were sweet. I love a good last page splash
And this last panel from issue 4 was just beautiful
Actually, yes, I believe it’s a good idea to have a team that can connect to those they are protecting… of course, Lobo kind of contradicts this (though I’ll give him a pass, it’s freaking logo) and the fact they have super powers (we, most of them) further removes them from that connection (something that actually came up in, I believe, issue 3 after I thought this answer up)
Oof, this is a hard one, especially considering that this lineup is chalk full of some of my favorites… but… I guess I’ll say… a tie between Black canary, Ryan, and Frost?
Sorry if this isn’t that articulate, I’m rather tired but had to get this down while everything was still fresh.
