Breakneck #1 (of 3)

The last super villain alive is only alive because he was a no-body, but now, after the hero’s war, he’s all that is left. Breakneck #1 (of 3) explores what it would be like to be the last man left from 215 Ink.

This book is proof that a good story can make me ignore the art. The art is consistent, but it is not a style I find instantly attractive. However, the story overrides what at first looks like half done art. The story conveyed really tugs at the art and reveals how masterful it can be. The panels are laid out well. The pages move well. The style, while not my taste, has an overall working that makes it move.

The story concept seems almost instantly like any number of other comics. When I first started reading this my mind wandered to Mark Waid’s Boom! books about heroes and villains. However, Breakneck promises a different type of story.

One aspect that I liked was question of what does it mean when the heroes embrace violence and death. This is a thought provoking and fun read.
