One of the best comic books for adults This comic book is one of the best written series out there, the plot line is complex, full of plot twists. It is definitely for adults only, not only for the content but also for some of the psychological undertones. Holden is an undercover (sleeper)agent that loses his only contact on the “good” side and is stuck on the “bad” side. His “power” is that he can store and transmit the pain his body receives. Ironically enough, he cannot feel anything, be it pain or pleasure. I recommend reading the series in order, starting with season 1, part 1 (the GN in this review) and moving your way up to book 2 and then Season 2.
Smart, Innovative Writing and Great Artwork I really enjoyed the 2 Sleeper books. The story telling is excellent. The method used for revealing the characters origins was something I hadn’t seen before. The fact that these characters have super powers is almost an afterthought to the story which is refreshing. The plot twists keep you guessing and you really find yourself rooting for even the vilest of the villains Holden befriends.The artwork is very good (in that heavy dark inking style). The artwork in the origin re-tellings is even better.I’m a casual comic reader who just recently came back to graphic novels as an adult. The content in this book is definately adult in nature. Plenty of violence, sex and language… but it is used to further the plot of the story so it doesn’t come off as over the top.
