A lot of what I love best about the industry is in this book. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. I hope you loan it to friends, read it with your significant other, and above all, share it with your kids if you have any. Because that would be fun. And that’s what this book is about.
Honor Brigade takes its inspiration from the Silver Age of comics but it proves that, contrary to what some may think, a lot of that attitude can work well in a modern setting. There is just enough of an edge to all of these heroes to make them unique and interesting and once the cover is closed you find yourself wanting more.
The title has that classic superhero team book feel that is often lost in todays grim and gritty comic market. A fine series in the spirit of the JSA and Astro City, Honor Brigade wasnt just a fun and satisfying read, it was a refreshing one. I was reminded of what I would like to see more of in comics and this is a title I would be proud to share with someone just entering comics or an established reader. This is one I can honestly say you should be reading.
