So I read the first issue of Ion and... it's good. I didn't hate it. It served it's purpose of first issue. Spoiler So in the past year Kyle has basically been a hermit of sorts. He's at some kind of retreat for painters but he knows something is wrong. There was a nice little homage to Radu, his former landlord.. romanian landlord . There was a cup with a "Radu's" logo. My main gripe with the book is... the art. It's a little screwey. I don't know this Tocchini character. Is he the same guy that used to do Robin a while back? I don't know if I like it or not... but most panels are very "painting" like. Loose colors, surreal feeling. As for characterization I am quite pleased to see that Kyle still thinks of himself as "just a guy... who did a job... is still doing it". Nice to see the power hasn't gone to his head like I thought it would after rebecoming Ion. Looking forward to next issue.
