Over at Comic Book Roundup, the ratings given to this book is the most varied I have ever seen.
It started with three published reviewers giving it a 4.0 out of 10, a very low rating.
Then some 10.0 and 8.0 reviews came in.
Right now it’s average rating with 7.5, which is the site lowest good rating
Reader reviews were sometimes much worse, with some 1.0.
My take is that the artwork was good, and the premise is clear and followed through the book.
But no character is likeable, including Big Barda.
There is no nuance or surprise in the comic.
The environment of the planet is always survival mode at best, and no-one seems to be educated enough to understand what is happening to them, except for a degree of resentment.
The Furies do what they do because they have no alternative.
If this was a trade, and there were five more issues to read, it might be interesting to see how the writer moves forward with the premise. But there is nothing in the first issue to indicate this will happen.
DC Daily is pushing this book, having the author on for Two days in a row, yet I don’t think any editor read it.
It would be very hard for me to buy the second issue.
