Just found out about this latest review, from the website What'cha Reading? It's particularly special to me because I met their Editor in Chief, Chuck Suffel, at my first comic con as a writer (Boston ComicCon in August, just a few weeks back) and it really felt great to meet face to face with someone running such a fun website. Definitely worth a follow on Facebook and Twitter.
Here's a snippet:
"I’ve often said that if a book can grab me in the first chapter it’s got me. This one did it in ten pages. The elevator pitch is somewhere around, a Professor X type builds a new team of young super powered’s to replace his disbanded Justice League style team. Or maybe it’s (a less angsty) Breakfast Club meets the JLA?
"...What makes this book unique and interesting is the interpersonal relationships and the growth of the characters. We all love our superhero trysts and triangles. Who does Wonder Woman really love? Will Wolvie and Cyke ever really get along? Will Jean Grey ever realize Cyclops is an ass? Now Matthew didn’t go too far, but this is YA fiction so I was expecting the drama. He played some of the best of the X-men and JLA personality conflicts out in new and different ways, without pandering or relying too heavily on any tropes."
