    Publishers Blurb:
    Justice Theta is the most powerful hero in the world. He works tirelessly to protect the people under his care, regardless of nationality or wealth. But today it seems like nothing is going his way. Fallen Justice, a dark tale of heroes and villains that will challenge the way you see heroes, begins here.

    Reviewer Comments:
    This series sets off to a rollicking start. It manages to be both something familiar and something different at the same time. I won’t say something new as it explores themes several super books have explored before; however, I will say different as it definitely puts its own stamp upon the material.

    We have JUSTICE THETA, the mightiest mortal. He leads a group called THE GURADIANS, but they don’t always see eye to eye. He’s more the decades spanning Superman, while they are the modern age style heroes. Think the disgruntled Superman of Kingdom Come, faced with the newer, more action/less thoughtful generation of heroes. One of the advantages that this book has is that these are NOT pre-established long-existing characters, and therefore they are free to act, do, say, think, and generally behave in ways that those icons cannot. And this is something that Carey and Forbes take full advantage of. You’ve heard it before, but I really mean it this time, just when you think you know exactly what’s going to happen next…you’re wrong. This book is definitely a fresh take on the Super Hero genre, and a smart tight one, at that. The story starts already in full swing, and keeps that momentum up, even as the exposition is delivered, the characters are introduced, and the obligatory hero origin is recounted, the story is still moving and bringing you further into this larger than life, but realistically flawed world. Harold Edge’s art has..well, and edge to it. A solid and stylized feel that suits the book, his pencils are neither too cartoony nor too realistic. It makes me think Todd Nauck and Rick Geary. The art is made all the more ‘solid’ looking by Ross Hughes’ (two names that work well in comics, eh?) masterful coloring. Definitely NOT the same old-same old, Fallen Justice is well worth picking up.

    Get it? Picking up? FALLEN Justice?

    You guys put out a great book...several in fact, but I've yet to review the rest...and you're thanking me? All I did was read your hard work. For free. :cool:

    As soon as I can type more than 10 words without having to stop and cough for five minutes, I'll get to the rest.

    Comments: This premiere issue starts out with action plus. Its an all out brawl. Justice Theta this world's main superhero comes across as an ordinary guy who just happens to have powers. His personality makes him a lovable guy.
    Justice Theta's origin is beautifully explained. It is nice to see an origin not filled with pain but one filled with hope.
    The art shows these heroes and the people around them as more human looking. They are drawn more realisticly. Its a nice change. They also face regular problems within the team and its dynamics.
    The villians are fresh and exciting. Justice Theta knows his life is getting harder. He just doesn't know what to do. When he does the right thing he finds out some life changing news.
    This is a wonderful comic just different enough to stand out from other superhero comics. Its action packed and also packed with drama.
    Good art, good story make for a great comic.
    Don't be caught red handed without this comic!

    Comments: Justice theta the top superhero in this Universe is a man filled with emotions. He cares very deeply. Justice Theta though crosses a line that he may never be able to come back from.
    Tragedy and comedy are two wonderfully created villians. No super powers but they do have a big gun and a nice repertoire. Comedy comes across as someone who has totally lost it. A tragedy can cause that. His comedy lines are the babblings of the insane.
    Justice Theta when he gets some bad news we see he is just like an ordinary man. Not quit refusing to accept it but not totally accepting it either. With all his powers deep down inside he is just a man.
    Justice Theta is also a hero and no matter what his condition he is still going to protect those in need. He is a true hero.

    Comments: The jail break by Comedy and Mob is an action filled scene. The art is well suited to this comic. It has a slight cartoon style to it but not overly so.
    As Justice Theta battles Comedy and Mob his teammates sit around thinking whether or not they should help him. His "teammates"? Even those who want to help sit and do nothing. Justice Theta is pushed to the edge so he does the only thing he can he pushes back.
    What happens when a super hero of incredible power finds out he has a brain tumor and is going to die? Justice Theta lets loose in a bloody killing streak. Justice Theta is going over the edge or has gone over it already.
    His team shows up and are they there to help or fight. Maybe both. The teams arrival gives us a stunning drawing of them.
    What happens when a hero goes over the edge. Find out here. It is a thrill ride you will not want to miss.

    Comments: Ross Hughes does a wonderful job on the colors. They are vibrant. They help bring this comic to life.
    The Guardians, Justice Theta's team show up and are ready to bring him down. Can the most powerful team defeat the most powerful superhero gone insane. The superheroes go all out using their abilities it is exciting to see them all in all out action.
    Dynagirl is drawn cute. Also she some sexiness without going overboard. Her feelings for Justice Theta are obvious as his g/f she does love him. So she will help him by whatever means necassary.
    Dynagirl is featured more this issue. She does make a strong character. Her attitude of being hard but also loving comes through in both the writing and art. Dyna-Girl does what she has to to find a way to defeat her lover Justice Theta. She can make the hard choices. Dynagirl is tough and cute.

    Comments: Dervish is the speedster and its cute as he is running along talking about the mission they are on that he still has time to stop for a girl in a short skirt. It is extremely well written this funny moment. The girl is drawn pretty sexy to.
    Simon Hurst he basicly has the power of Simon Says if he touches you you do whatever he tells you to. Dynagirl thinks she can now control him. She was once forced to do his bidding but its easy to see she has grown over the years. She is no mere girl now but a woman who wants to help the man she loves Justice Theta.
    Justice Theta really has lost it. He now gives no thought to killing.
    All the players are gathering and when they meet, there will be all Hell set loose. These heroes and villians play for keeps.
    Great story and art. Combined they give us a comic that will hold your interest and keep you coming back for more.
