The people, with the shades of gray, make the world much more realistic(as realistic as a comic book about superheroes and supervillians can be)than those of other comic books, but still has a problems because the book is relatively short and right when you really start to be intrigued and feel for the characters and understand the world the book is over.
Despite that problem i'd still recommend it to those who are new to graphic novels and those who are really into the whole comic book universe.
If there's one thing I want to give Incognito props for, it's that it deftly sidesteps the major pitfalls of modern comics when it comes to deconstructing what makes a bad guy bad. It doesn't get mawkish with teary-jerking epiphanies (a la Astro City), and it doesn't go the other popular route of trying to constantly shock the reader with over-the-top depravity (q.v. Wanted or The Boys). What we get are many excellent moments of humor, introspection, and action, conveyed without cheap sentimentality, goofy one-liners or gore for its own sake.
The noir-style artwork is a smooth fit for the story's tone. It's stylized, but it captures all right little touches, like the lines on a character's face that perfectly captures their expression.
Anybody who feels like they're trapped in the rut of an unremarkable life, not doing whatever it is they were born to do but not knowing what to do about it, should readily be able to relate to Incognito.
