I am so very excited. There are some DC and Marvel superhero books that I love, but this superhero title is my favorite. Busiek's writing never misses. Some people that I've talked to are a little put off by the art, but if you read the book, there is no other art that would have worked with the stories being told. It's Golden Age perfection in a Silver Age book. Do yourself a favor and check this title out. Everyone's superhero soul could do with a cleansing scrub-down every once in awhile, this is the book that can get that done.
