Anyone else here reading this? I should point out to anyone that isn't, that this has been - for me at least - the best, most interesting, and most engaging comic series I've ever read. Brad Meltzer is a genius of a writer, and I don't think I've ever read a comic story with this caliber of writing ever before - and I've read a lot of comics. If you love comics and aren't reading this one, then you should be. I could not recommend it more highly.
I'm hoping to start a discussion about the book here, but as I know that Marvel fans, for reasons which I will never fully comprehend, tend to outnumber DC fans I thought it might be a good idea to see who else is on board first. While I really don't see how having prior knowledge of the DCU and all of the characters involved in the story is necessary, the story deals pretty intensely with DC continuity and some of the less familiar characters; I only worry that this may be keeping some readers from checking it out. To those people I say not to worry about all that as the plot and characters are plenty well written enough for you to be able to pick up on who's who, why and how pretty quickly.
I recently re-read the first four issues trying to gather clues and figure this thing out (God help me, I do love a good mystery!). I wound up with a lot of good clues, some half-baked theories and one monster of a headache, and I'm hoping that discussing it in these forums might not only be fun, but might also help us figure out the mystery of who's behind the mystery! Anyone care to join in?
