Ok, ok, it really is clever. The world that’s almost like the real one, but with a superpowered mayor of NYC. The politics can draw you in whether you like them or not. Though not so much, not as much as other wilder worlds Vaughan had imagined in his other comics.
This time it gets all too personal. Not only Mitch gets to find out some secrets from his own past, but also one of his employees, the young Journal, gets all too involved in a war protest. Because young people can get like that about protests. Can the intrepid mayor machine maintain his balance grasp on power? Of course, he can. It’s kind of his thing. That and his much-hinted at sexuality.
Anyway, a quick read. Entertaining enough. Remains the least fun Vaughan. For this reader, anyway.
