Default TPB Discussion: The Mighty Vol. 1

This is a discussion of the trade paperback THE MIGHTY Volume 1, collecting THE MIGHTY #1-6.

Basic premise is your standard Superman-type hero as the lone super hero of Earth, Alpha One, and his support organization, Section Omega, and how they go about policing the world.

I picked this up because my retailer gave me a great deal. Wasn't really looking for another alternate take on Superman... especially from the company that produces Superman. It was still an enjoyable read. The direction you could see coming from the very beginning, but I found myself to be along for the ride. I liked the origin for Alpha One, I thought that rather unique. And Snejbjerg's art was excellent. Samnee did a great job as his replacement. I may eventually get the conclusion, but it's not high on my list. Probably if I see it at the library, I'll check it out.

I have to look and see what issue I stopped getting this as. It was an enjoyable series but as you said, you could see the direction coming a mile away and that pushed this off my "must buy" list.

Exactly. And I just realized that volume 2 isn't due out until August. I can't imagine my interest holding out that long.
