This is actually a collection of 12 short stories. In most of them, a character has a superpower, but Wood confronts them in a more realistic manner than X-Men. Power is important, and often subverted by those with powers. Every time I thought a story was settling into a cliche, I was shocked.
I liked Emmy's the best, although Kate's truly surprised me.
I like this more than I liked The New York Four, but not by a whole lot.
What I really enjoyed was Becky Cloonan's artwork, which changed in each story. Sometimes it was very manga-esque; sometimes it was reminiscient of Bryan Lee O'Malley's Scott Pilgrim. Always, it was superb and appropriate for the story.4:25 PM
