Nope
Brilliant Issue 1 (Marvel - Icon ) July 2011 - Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley

Characters were better than in Takio, but not much.   Not enjoying Bendis' solo work as much as his work on Marvel properties.

Bendis gave a whole bunch of comics away from free
The United States of Murder Inc. #1 - Michael Avon Oeming,Brian Michael Bendis

I didn't care enough to continue with any of them.

Felt it less than Powers
Scarlet #1 - Brian Michael Bendis,Alex Maleev

But, Maleev.   I love Oeming, but nothing compares to Maleev's art.   And that boosted this, which I felt was more set up, without really going anywhere.   Unlikely I'll continue with this series.

Wanted more
Powers #1 - Michael Avon Oeming,Brian Michael Bendis

Maybe it's because I've seen the first series of the show, but I wanted more to go on.   This was all setup, and in my opinion didn't set up nearly enough for what this was. 

 

I just didn't really connect with it, so not sure if I'll continue.

Enjoyed this
Powers (2000-2004) #1 - Michael Avon Oeming,Brian Michael Bendis

Jinxworld is part of DC now, and to celebrate, Bendis gave away a whole slew of #1s.  I grabbed them. 

 

This was among one of my favorites: it's a murder-mystery in which the world is well aware of super powers.   When Retro Girl is killed - albeit at the end of the issue - it's going to be about figuring out who killed her via good, old detective work. 

 

I know, because I've heard about this series, and Retro Girl's murder isn't a spoiler - in my opinion - since this arc is called 'Who Killed Retro Girl?"  It's not about knowing if it happens, it's about the journey to figure out who, although this comic is mostly set up.   Good set up - but it also doesn't answer a whole bunch of questions that I felt like I knew about, having seen the series. 

 

So my knowledge about this series killed a little bit of the enjoyment for me, which is why this is four stars instead of five.
