It wasn't bad, but I'm not saddened by its cancellation. ( )

Reads more like GI Joe than a DC property ( )

This isn't too bad really, but it had more potential than it gave. It's an action/adventure high-tech military operation kind of like A-Team, but more character driven and sci-fi like Stargate while the enemy they meet is a hive-collective like the Borg. So that's all really cool, but sadly there is no character development, almost all the characters are created from scratch for this series and there are no back stories for anyone. Boo! Lady Blackhawk, of course, is a mainstream DC character, but I don't know her. I liked everyone else but wanted to know them. There are 8 issues gathered here, that was plenty of space to include a backstory of some sort for everyone. At least they were given notice of cancellation as the book ends on a final note and there are character threads floating around so it's possible somebody could show up again. Not terrible, not connected to the DC Universe in any way, and certainly not required reading, but not a waste of time. I enjoyed it for what it was. ( )

There was a cool idea hidden somewhere within this book, but it never really came together. There is no question that this is one of the worst New 52 volumes I have read so far in my quest to read all 52. The art was pretty good, and the characters were cool but there were no formal introductions before things got really heavy plot wise. I would have liked to see a little more simple action, before we got into the heavy duty tech problems and characters talking to others and being all over the place. ( )
