At this point I’m only buying this book to see how bad it can get. The story is dire! They need to pull the plug on this ASAP.

It was nice of Valiant to let 2 fans do the art on this book (I assume that’s what happened) facepalm

1.5/5

Its a shame this book is so incredibly poor overall so far. I am actually looking forward to seeing Rags Morales come back into the Valiant fold, and see what his art on the next story arc will be like. I feel bad for him that he's stuck working on a stinker as his first project back, however he will absolutely have an escalation effect on the quality of the title - even if the writing continues to be as weak.

If weve learned anything from DMG he wont be the only
Artist and will probably work on other stuff.

Talk about underwhelming. Almost no story here, I still don't get how this works with continuity at all. I miss Ray. I miss his little girl. I miss the dog.

And honestly the art is like cheap indie tier. I've worked with better artists than this and that's not acceptable for Valiant.
My super-successfully crowdfunded debut comic, Flying Sparks: https://www.amazon.com/Flying-Sparks-Jo ... 9527303419 is now up on Amazon! The story of a hero and villain dating under their secret identities. Worlds collide!

The story is getting better. The art is improved.

But it does read like the last five years of the book never happened. That sucks.

And I'm not a professional writer or anything, but it's "eminently necessary" not "imminently necessary".

You are correct. Like I said, I'm not a professional writer. I'll leave it to others to judge how most of my grammar and syntax stands up to yours, which I sometimes find a little interesting. :P

This book is terrible. Valiant should be embarrassed. That is all.
