Yeah, much the same as with the first two books. I really love Vaughan as a writer, but not so much this series. Conceptually, it’s very interesting and original. An NYC mayor with superpowers. But as a story it just doesn’t do much for me – it’s simply too heavily political for my liking.
Not enough unconventional superhero shenanigans, too much mayoring. Not enough world-building – too much real world.
The writing’s great, solid dialogue and all that. The art’s great too. It reads quickly enough. It just doesn’t have the same excitement, the same wild energy, the same WOW factor of Vaughan’s other works.
Though the Wachowskis love it. They did an introduction to the books before they were sisters. About how much they like the concept. And it is a neat concept. And probably a much more fun read for fans of politics.
