Busiek was clearly flexing writing muscles that would ultimately make a much bigger mark for him in the comic book world -- in fact, a great deal of this series can't help but remind you of his "Thunderbolts" series for Marvel, in which a band of villains masqueraded as heroes in a plan for world domination.
Where Busiek succeeded was in creating memorable characters -- angry Burnout, confused Cimarron, repentant Crackshot and the leader/not a leader, Slick. The sad thing is that these characters got lost after just eight issues and a special, leaving a lot of questions unanswered about their pasts, present and future.
The book is a nice, compact package -- not quite as small as a CrossGen "Traveler" comic but smaller than your regular trade paperback. Also, shot in black and white, the artwork maintains a very nice quality and is not hurt at all by the miniaturization process. This book looks just about as good as it possibly could.
Check this book out if you're a fan of Busiek. Spread the word, seed new "Liberty Project" fans. Busiek still owns the characters, after all. Hopefully someday he'll bring them back and we'll have a chance to find out where they all went.
Yes, I'm someone who prefers his Astro City books.
The story is a good read - simple but interesting. The art is pretty good (even in the reduced quality reproductions here). I found myself returning to the book a couple times and enjoying it. I got a kick out of the costumes, which are pure 80s (think Duran Duran and Janet Jackson). This book is a remarkable step up from most of the books of its time. I'm glad it was collected.
