We are all obsessed with the idea of celebrity.

We are even more obsessed when a celebrity crashes and burns.

Now imagine if there were superheroes in the real world. They’d be famous, right?

What would happen if one of them lost their powers?

That is the case with our protagonist Nick Wilson. Let the crash and burn begin!

Wilson at the start of the book is lacing up his boots and getting into his superhero outfit.

Then, by the second page somebody is throwing up on him. We find out we are at a children’s birthday party. Nick has to dress up as the person he once was for entertainment. It’s humiliating. But it doesn’t stop there.

Nick has also become a joke in the public eye. He was a superhero in his 20s and now is a has-been in his 30s. How does one reconcile that? Marc Andreyko and Eddie Gorodetsky aim to answer that question in this five part series.

How did they do in this first issue?

Surprisingly well. The writing is funny and fast. It’s also human. They make Nick Wilson an identifiable and tragic character. They also keep him away from being gloomy or making the character too dark. It’s a great read overall for a first issue.

Sadowski is one of the most underrated artists ever to be in this field. I love his work and I hope this brings him to greater acclaim. His storytelling is great and his figure drawing is tops. He excels here as he always does.

The issue ends with a nice cliffhanger. I definitely can’t wait until the next issue. This is a cut above some of the other books out there. Pick it up when it hits the stands. It’s truly excellent.

RATING: A
