John Byrne's return to super-hero books is a fun look back at the classics he did at Marvel and DC. Mostly this book will remind the long time reader of his time on Fantastic Four and Danger Unlimited.
The art is done in a very good traditional style. The buildings and special effects are also done in a classic style. It depends more on the artists line work than letting the colorist fill it in.
The least interesting part of the art are the main characters. Rock, Paper, Scissors are the weakest designs in the book.
The story takes a couple of chapters to get the reader to care about the characters. My favorite of the four chapters is the final one with the villain from the past.
If you want to read a fun old school super hero title, try this one.
