Hadn't realized how long it had been since perusing these pages. So, sorry for the late response. So blasted busy!
I really enjoy the Valiant Universe. Great characters with a nice mix of action and drama that always integrates well with the story they are trying to tell. Canon is always good to know. But, I think this issue summarizes things easily for new readers. It's a book that takes a little more time to read than the norm these days as the artist at times takes ten panels a page to tell the story with some really nice art that flows well. It's something I appreciate these days. The main character is Livewire. African-American female with a unique power that's very relevant to the age in which we live. She's a technopath which is basically a power that gives her an affinity to use and manipulate and understand electrical machines. Very original character with no need to be some mundane rehash of an established male counterpart. Yeah, that's a shot at Marvel. The books got humor mixed with brutal danger as we learn about and meet some new psiots Livewire is trying to track down and protect that were abandoned by her former mentor Toyo Harada.
Anyway, don't want to spoil too much for those reading but I th9ught it was a really fine first installment. I recommend most anything Valiant these days. Its my favorite publishing company.

Thanks. Curious now. Like Misty Knight?
