By 365 Graphic Novels 11 Jul 2013 4

This volume is so blue it's practically pink. There is so much nudity here you risk blindness and hairy palms just by reading it. But like the proverbial kid in a candy store you quickly become inured to it so it only serves to illuminate the morals and juvenility of the Supes and their political handlers. The art is great and the bold clear colours really bring out the island paradise feel as all the worlds Supes nip off for some covert spring break excess.

As this is an odd numbered volume we learn more about what is going on and what has gone on before. This volume is a cross between Where's Wally in Pornoland and the Manchurian Candidate. It expertly fuses eye popping titillation and political skulduggery and something bad happens to Wee Hughie.

This is a skilfully told story with masterfully subtle setups and shocking or satisfying payoffs. We are now well and truly hooked and can't wait for more. Absolutely a Thumbs Up!
