The Rundown: Cameron’s unexplained powers get the attention of some very dangerous people.
Young Cameron has not had the best life and his current life on the streets of Metropolis will become more dangerous when he stumbles upon an experiment that not only changes his life, but puts a target on his back.
In the present, he uses his gifts to find things in the city no one else can. When he is threatened by a criminal who wants him to work for him, Cameron unleashes his power and attracts the attention of some intergalactic enemies.
The Story: Pak crafts an interesting and entertaining first issue. The story takes some interesting twists and turns and I like the fact that the reader is brought into a seemingly standard crime story that beautifully teases a bigger, more dangerous story to come. I look forward to seeing where this story goes next.
The Art: Jung’s art is beautifully detailed and filled with great movement and energy. There is a vibrancy to the imagery that kept me engaged throughout the issue.
