Guys....  You've got to check out 'Rising Stars' graphic novel.

Senior Mal got a copy of the first book when Spartan mentioned it on these forums, and he let me borrow it.

I finished reading it last night....  it is absolutely amazing....

You have got to go check it out :)

I have to agree. If you want an easy way to see just how Utopia (and in particular Proteus) would operate in the Aberrant setting, then this is the book for you.

What's it about?

I am not big on comics.  I have only read Preacher, Usagi Yojimbo and Ghost in the Shell...

Its written by the guy who did B5 J M Strazinschy (Or whatever the hell his name is).

Its about 113 Kids who were In Utero at the time of a mysterious impact (metorite or something) on their home town. however it becomes apparent after the children are born that they have... super powers. They all have different types, some are low level others are more like super man. Its the story of how they fit (or not as the case may be) into society and how the government and other organisations attempt to control them. (Sounding like a certain game just yet).

In all honesty as a quick reference as to how Aberrant should be run its a damn fine resource.

The second volume was released in December -01, iirc.

And I can´t afford it.  :sneaky2

Not only that, but vol. 2 of "Planetary", vol. 3 of "100 Bullets" as well as the first trade paperbacks of "New X-men", "Queen and Country" and "Codename: Knockout".

GRRRRRRRRRRRR.
