Project Superpowers - Jim Krueger, Alex Ross Beyond that fact that this book has some truly beautiful artwork, this has also an excellent story, utilizing some characters that most folks nowadays won't have a prayer of recognizing. Most of the characters in Project Superpowers were previously published in the forties and fifties by comic book companies that are long since defunct, such as Lev Gleason and Nedor. Silver Streak, the Green Lama, the Fighting Yank, the original Daredevil (called the Death-Defying Devil here) and many more have been brought together for a radical revamping that actually works. This is the team behind Marvel Comics' Earth X series, and Alex Ross provides the covers and a sheaf of background drawings. Definitely recommended!
