Super Human
Super Human (The New Heroes/Quantum Prophecy #4) - Michael Carroll The story starts with two threads, one set 4,493 year ago the other set in present-day or near future US. Set in the same world as his previous Quantum Prophecy novels it would probably help to have read them to understand some of the characters and their relationships to each other but not essential as there are new characters and new issues to be dealt with. A virus is widespread across the world, incapacitating most of the adults, including some of the super-powered. This is part of a plan by a shadowy group who have their own super-powered working with them, they want to bring an immortal to the past to the present and will do anything and sacrafice anyone to achieve this aim. I liked Lance, he's a great character, can talk his way in and out of almost any situation and while not super-powered he is a good member of the team. Abby also has potential and I'm looking forward to seeing more of both of them in the sequels. It's a very readable story and I did get caught up in it, it just wasn't my favourite read.

The Ascension: A Super Human Clash
The Ascension: A Super Human Clash: A Super Human Clash - Michael Carroll So the battle was over, Krodin disappeared and then suddenly things change. Our heroes find that the world has changed, America is under martial law and they are going to have to make some very hard choices to succeed with their plans. What's scary is that there are chunks of the non-superhuman loss of rights etc stuff that's completely believable. And what's going to happen next? Interesting series and I'm curious about what's going to happen next.

Ultimates: Super-Human 1 - Mark Millar,Brian Hitch When it comes to classic comic book characters, I'm such a n00b, it's not funny. So I'm not going to do a real review of this, just a few notes.

Excellent comic book for those who adored The Avengers movie, but have never read a comic book about Captain America, the Hulk, Iron Man or any of the other "classic" Marvel superheroes. AKA me.

Story: Very nice. Good pacing, interesting story. I had no trouble jumping in, with my only knowledge of these characters from the movie(s).

Characters: Funny and genuine. I wish there were more females and females in a positive light, but I guess I should be happy that there are women in this.

Art: Beautiful. Little to no trouble following the panels. (Though there is an odd two page spread of the Hulk that is spread across the front and back of same page.)

Action: Well done. There is a flow, a sense of cohesion between panels, beyond just showing Captain America in one cool pose after another.

Excellent graphic novel that I had trouble putting down. Can't wait for Volume 2!

The Ultimates Vol. 1: Super-Human
Ultimates: Super-Human 1 - Mark Millar,Brian Hitch I was all down with this graphic novel until the characters starting casting themselves in their own movies and Nick Fury said he would be played by Samuel L. Jackson, and all other kinds of crazy nonsense... Oh and the fact that Antman went psycho was great, but at the same time terrible. I have really mixed feelings about this one, would like to read the second volume to see if it redeems itself at all.. And The Hulk has to Hulk out just to give them something to fight? Doesn't that pretty much say something about this graphic novel, that they had no good ideas so they fucked everything up and then had Hulk be the temporary bad guy and then was forgiven? Fucking lame... I just switched this from 4 stars to 3.5 after typing this.
