My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Cain Marko is one of those characters who always runs hot and cold for me. Written well he can be really interesting, written badly he can be a real one note character. Fortunately Fabian Nicieza is an excellent writer and this is an enjoyable book.

Juggernaut’s made several attempts to reform in the past, but as we meet him in this book he seems to be attempting to be neither good guy nor bad guy, but just…guy. He’s working demolition with Damage Control and just getting on with his life. This brings him into contact with a young, homeless, super powered woman called D-Cell. She looks to be an interesting character and I’m intrigued to see how her relationship with Cain develops.

I’m also intrigued to find out how Cain got out of Limbo and regained his powers, which is something I assume we’re going to discover over the course of this series.

Finally, Ron Garney’s art is exceptional, as ever, and really suits the Juggernaut, stylistically. His style gives this series the grounding it needs.

The only reason I didn’t give this a higher score is that it felt very brief. There’s not a lot here and I suspect that this series will work better in trade paperback form. But, still, a good read nonetheless.
