Although the book is in a prestige format and the artwork is top notch (subtle changes to indicate differences in timing was a nice touch), Schwartz's story is more like a true indy that takes chances, and so as a whole the book is the best of all worlds. That's probably not the best idea for a mainstream franchise comic book series looking to cash in on future toy lines and Wal-Mart t-shirt deals, but it's a great approach for a well designed and thoroughly enjoyable graphic-based and story driven novel.
I did enjoy the ending. But since I almost stopped reading at the beginning I can't really justify a 4 star rating. The book starts with whining: nice guy who likes a girl who only dates "jerks". Not that they really show those men being jerks, but that is assessment. Almost, made me put down the book at that point. But I own it because an impulse buy at the store (used comic). And I figured I should read it. It deals with some tropes that other comics use: super scientist who is like magic and the like.
So, a decent read. I'll keep it.
I would definitely recommend this comic.
