Review: O.M.A.C. #1 (DiDio & Giffen)


The sleeper hit of the New 52!

You can't help but fall in love with Dan DiDio and Keith Giffen's O.M.A.C. #1.

Really, as you scan the cover and see this goofy looking blue dude with a giant fin, you wonder just what the heck you are getting yourself into.

However, as you begin to read, you find yourself turning page after page as your attention is totally captured by just what DiDio and Giffen have provided.

It is a strange - and let's face it - a downright weird tale that sees this uber powered (cyborg?) being influenced by an unknown entity making his way to the Project Cadmus mainframe.

As various hurtles are placed in OMAC's path, were see an awesome display of might!

This issue has a real old school feel to it, as DiDio and Giffen obviously include a glimpse (more than, I would say) of O.M.A.C. creator, Jack Kirby. There is a heavy sci-fi vibe to it as well, as the various denizens of Cadmus offer whatever they can in an attempt to stop OMAC. In addition, this includes something long time fans will come to recognize and eye can say it's well done, brother!

All in all a very fine book, and one I believe you may just be surprised with. Be sure to pick this one up.

I'll be getting #2!
