Who knew this "Real World" dude could write? Well, he did get an Eisner nomination for "Pedro and Me," his graphic novel about his RW roomie who died of AIDS.
But this book is... GREAT! Outsiders is gritty, funny, and has a great edge to it. Definitely not a book for young kids. It also has some good ol' superhero storytelling, so it's a great blend of the old and new.
The best part (surprisingly) is the Metamorpho storyline, about what happened to him when he disappeared and how he returned, very cool. Great appearance by the Joker too. Winick really knows how to write for Joker (funny and twisted). The artwork is impressive too.
I can't wait to pick up the 2nd TPB!
