Mr. Gillen takes the annoying and weak path of telling this story out of order on a few occasions. There are some writers and stories that can make the out-of-sequence story work, but Mr. Gillen uses it as so many other writers have - to hide a weak plot and hope that the reader overlooks weak dialogue while they are trying to piece together the story.
The art is excellent. Kudos. It can't save the story though.
The premise is great - 12 or 13 young adults (or teens) are given powers that remind of us different pantheons (Greek, Norse, Aztec, Egyptian). They will all die within two years. Those bestowed with the powers react differently - some behave selfishly (most), while a few want to increase the enjoyment of others, and one or two want to help the world. The various characters look like different vapid celebrities (Drake and Rhianna are easy to spot) from the 21st century. It's a nice touch, and a strong commentary on celebrity culture. Volume 2 had strong ruminations on death - this one does not, which is silly, because all of these young people will die soon. Logic dictates it should be on their mind.
I don't now if I'll continue the series. I'm massively disappointed.
