Omega Men is 12 Issues Again

OMEGA_MEN_2_552d64e1ed3095.70430801DC Comics had announced last week the cancellation of a few series, and that some limited series would be seeing their runs cut short. One series, Omega Men, was planned for twelve issues, but was announced that it’d end after six.

While sales weren’t great, the series has been praised, especially by reviewers, and is one of the most well reviewed series out of DC’s recent relaunch. So, folks weren’t too happy about the short run.

The comic is a sci-fi series focused on a group that may, or may not be terrorists, it all depends on which side of the fight you’re on. It’s written by Tom King with art by Barnaby Bagenda.

Well, DC has listened, announced the series would return to its full twelve issue run. See companies do listen!

Review: The Omega Men #2

OMEGA_MEN_2_552d64e1ed3095.70430801What do you do after the entire galaxy watches you murder the White Lantern Kyle Rayner? Run.

The first issue of The Omega Men felt like those few moments before the credits of an action movie where you’re thrown right into the thick of it, and have to figure out what’s going on in the midst of the chaos. It was cool in ways because of that, but it’s good to take steps back, and that’s exactly what happens here in this second issue.

We’re introduced to the “big bad,” just called Viceroy as he surveys the damage the Omega Men created and what will happen in return (hint it involves more death with an interesting real historical twist to it). And that’s what’s really cool about writer’s Tom King‘s comic work. King in the past has worked in CIA counter terrorism, and brings that knowledge to his writing.

There’s some very cool movement in the plot here, things I don’t want to spoil, but it all got me more excited to see what comes.

Of particular note for me is the use of religion, and symbols in the issue. It comes up over and over at times subtle ways. It’s small details I really enjoyed. And speaking of details, I need to give a shout out to Trevor Hutchison for his propaganda covers. So cool and just adds to the series.

Barnaby Bagenda‘s art for the series is fantastic. The various aliens, the world, the small details of the symbols (you’ll see when you read), all adds to a great visual experience. It’s some of my favorite art in a DC series. Just a great match.

The Omega Men so far has continued the tradition of sci-fi to explore real world issues, and entertain at the same time. Here’s to many more issues and see where King takes this story, especially with his interesting background and knowledge, a unique perspective in the industry.
