    Default Inferior 5 Maxi Series, your thoughts?

    Are you reading it? Thoughts after 2 issues? Think you'll keep picking it up?

    I've enjoyed the first two issues. A nice sense of mystery trying to figure out what is going on, a few nods/easter eggs to the original Inferior Five, and I am digging the Peacemaker back up (which was the main reason I decided to get this as individual issues rather than trade wait). I am a bigger fan of Lemire's creator-owned stuff than I am of his big 2 work so far in his career, and this has more of the vibe his creator-owned and better work-for-hire stuff does, so I am in for the whole run.

    It was not at all what I expected, and that's a plus. I'm in for the run.

    So far is... eh.

    It seems like Giffen is taking his time setting-up this universe, story and cast but he might be taking too long at doing so since is better for titles with obscure characters to start with a bang, not to mention that Giffen books tend to work better when they catch you from the beginning since Lord knows that he's not the best in the long term. And yes, I'm calling Inferior Five a "Giffen book" despite that Jeff Lemire is co-writing it because the style is all pure Giffen and at this point it might be a bit too predictable since he has this tendency of deconstructing original creations he considers silly into new versions that might be too different for their own good, sometimes Giffen tries too hard.

    Lemire's Peacemaker story rocks though.

    I'm definitely on board. I like Giffen, but I'm really buying it for Peacemaker and I just started Lemire's Black Hammer, which is really good. I'm glad that we know the two stories are going to connect otherwise I'm not as interested in the IF, though the story itself is interesting.

    Read the first issue and I can't quite get into. I'll probably just trade wait this thing.

    Guys, it's been cancelled. Will now end at issue 6 instead of the 12 stated in the solicits.

    I've been enjoying this, although it was clearly set up as a slow boil for 12 issues. Gonna be interesting to see how they condense it to six.

    That said, I've noticed they're bringing in a lot of C-list characters. We've got Peacemaker ... then Brother Power the Geek ... and now the Tasmanian Devil.

    Perhaps the Inferior 5 wasn't so much the kids as a handful of really, really overlooked heroes?

    I absolutely love it. But it should have been called something else. It’s Inferior Five in name only and the Inferior Five name just doesn’t make sense. Unless I’m missing something.
    Imagine being proud to have negative traits. I canít relate.
