Superpowers - keilj
Like just about everything that Alex Ross does, this series looks deeper into what it means to be a hero. The pairing of Jim Krueger writing, and Ross co-plotting, gives us what we would expect from these two, a rich story that delves into the very ideals of good versus evil, and a philosophical examination of how good and evil intertwine and offset, as well as combat, each other.
In this case, Ross and Krueger make relatively unknown characters interesting because of what they stand for, and because of their inner struggles. And again, those inner struggles go to the very heart of what it means to fight for good.
Aside from the content of the story, I was also pleased with this issue because it is a full issue. Recently it has become common practice to offer a bargain-priced premier issue with 10 or fewer story pages, and perhaps some sketches. Not so in the case of Superpowers number 0, in which we get a full-length comic for a dollar.
