Review by Jane Seaton
Issue one plods through the standard superhero set up, looking fresh only because we're seeing the story through the eyes of girlfriend, Grace. She's clearly done her research. Even though she precipitates John's metamorphosis into an invisible strongman by getting herself trapped in a burning apartment, she knows that doesn't give her the right to insist he returns to normality, domesticity and traditional romance. Ever practical (yet feminine), she gets him checked over by a friendly medic and resolves to stick by him. Neither one of this all-American pair of lovers seems entirely clear what this will involve, but clearly, it threatens to be more radical than rescuing the occasional damsel from a dark alley full of muggers.
I'm hoping that in #2, they'll move to a pleasant middle class suburb, where dark alleys are unknown and apartment blocks are fitted with sprinklers, and discover that John's superpowers will never be needed again.
