The story is incredible, its a new twist on what different people would do with the powers they were given. There is a town where, when a comet of sorts hits, all children in utero are endowed with varying powers. There are 113 in all. So many things are covered, such as the reactions of the parents of these children, the government's way of dealing with them, and the "specials" relations with each other. The plot is well planned out and will end with the 24th issue, meaning that there are 2 more trades to follow this one. One word of advice, do not flip through the book, read it page by page so you can enjoy all the suspense and mystery. The art is incredible as well, so what are you waiting for? One of my all time favorites. Any comic book fan or any fan of Babylon 5 will enjoy this book. It is also great if you have friends that you want to get into comic books.
