From Image I read:
- the Allies have superheroes in WW2. Only they aren't all very nice people, and they often are used in ugly ways. I love B. Clay Moore's writing, but his middle name is NOT "Regularly Scheduled"
- a bored young woman suddenly finds herself with the superpowers of a recently-killed villain. Great, NOW what os she supposed to do?
- a CIA spy on the run in Mexico in the 60s, being chased by virtually every agency on the planet, though he has no real idea why. More B. Clay Moore.
- described by the author as "robot science fiction noir pulp" - if he'd have added "spies" he'd have pushed every comic-buying button I have. Maybe "monsters" would have been good too, but I think those are implied.
- bored girl decides to go for bounty hunter lessons in the Other Dimension. Gets 15 minutes of training and a jet unicycle. I predict problems.
- two issues in. Waid writing, Silvestri drawing, very muddled plot. Hopefully it'll get better.
- boy discovers he is a superhero just like his dad. Only... it's not that simple.
- the BEST superhero soap opera anywhere. And not the negative connotation of soap opera, either.
Sea of Red
- zombie vampire pirates from the Spanish main rampage into the present.
- a precog/telepath on the Denver PD, who is not supposed to have those powers in his position copes with the threat of being outed plus a bunch of other stuff. Good police drama with superhero touches.
- set post-Rapture, a young girl struggles with the demon-controlled world. Not for the religious or the easily offended - I'm neither and this has pushed my buttons a time or two.
