What happens to an extended family of superheroes and their friends when a growing disaffection with authority prompts a brutal coup against their leader—led by his own brother? With both her superhero parents murdered, Chloe must go into hiding with drug-distributor bad boy Hutch, son of the greatest supervillain of all time. The narrative jumps time frames, beginning in the past and returning there in the middle to show how the Utopian, Chloe's father, and his army of superheroes were born from the gifts received by an alien race. The final part of the tale is set in a future where Chloe and Hutch have a young son who must also be protected. If it all sounds intriguing, it only gets better with the exquisite storytelling of Millar (Kick-Ass, The Secret Service) and the emotive and explosive line work of Quitely (All-Star Superman, WE3). The veteran duo are adept at creating immersive environments and mesmerizing vistas that the characters naturally inhabit. (Apr.)
