But this is dark police drama with superpowers rather than a superhero comic per se. In fact what costumes exist are probably a distraction that another draft may have removed (see Wanted) and the book has much more in common with the sub-genre of corrupted-policeman-staying-true-to-himself that fuels the likes of Dirty Harry. Except, as vengeful mass murdering policemen goes, this seems to have an aura of New Man/Liberal Police about it which is very unexpected. More to come.
