(W) Simon Spurrier
(A/CA) Chris Wildgoose
Acclaimed writer Simon Spurrier (John Constantine Hellblazer, Coda) and artist Chris Wildgoose (Batgirl, Batman: Nightwalker) present a subversive coming-of-age story about about having all the power to change the world but the unready hands to truly wield it. Three teenagers, each an outcast in their own way, stumble upon an unearthly entity as it's born. As they bond over this shared secret and the creature's incredible abilities, it becomes clear to the teenagers that their cute little pet is a super-predator in the making - and it's in need of prey. Guided by the best intentions at first, the teens' decisions soon become corrupted by adolescent desires, small town jealousies, and internal rivalries, sending them into a catastrophic spiral of their own making.

BONUS REVIEW by Rick Berg


Ugh! I forgot to save this review the first time around. Guess I was too busy trying to sum up my lack of feelings for this book. Basically I only read it because 1) Simon Spurrier wrote CODA last year (I love CODA. Read CODA.) and 2) BOOM! has a lot of great books right now. So I jumped right in without even reading the solicitation. And... I totally don't care about the 3 main characters. At all, just meh. I don't hate them but I don't like them either. They are just a mishmash of stereotypes mixed in a blender that happen to all be named a version of Sam. So the three of them find an alien sack in the woods and get a weird superpower. They can hear each other's thoughts. This power is then shoved down your throat for 18 pages. Over and over and over and over. It was here I really learned I don't feel anything to, for or about these guys. Not one bit of interesting to draw me in. I felt alienated from them, so goodjob there I guess. Thankfully in the last few pages the alien sack opens and my intrigue was piqued. No facehugger but some very neat visuals leave a good enough hook/ cliffhanger that I will be back next issue. Maybe.

I give it 5 out of 10 Grahams
