Hell of an iconic cover sure sets the mood, and from the get-go, we get a sci-fi, starship vibe perfectly served by the scratchy, stark art of Barnaby Bagenda. Where did this guy come from? Great stuff.

The Omega Men are being hunted, evidently for killing White (formerly Green) Lantern Kyle Rayner. They are being spoken about in alien languages the audience doesn’t always get translations for. The hunters are quirky and ruthless, but when they find what they are looking for, who they are looking for, the consequence is so dramatic and brutal that maybe a reader feels a little sorry for them. Not sure everything is explained, but who wants too much exposition? Good start to an ongoing series. (
