Too violent for it's own good

Summary and Scans here

The Good

Art- The opening page had a great throwback feel while the rest of the book drawn by Eric Jones is stylized with dynamic colors that add to the intensity of every scene.

Story- Literally a world in which children now rule, action, sex and wanton violence to follow I’m sure. The mystery of what defeated the heroes and it’s imminent arrival on earth is intriguing to say the least! I’ll certainly stick around to see where things are headed!

Characters- The personalities that stood out where Apollo who seemed an amalgam of both superboy and the mythology of the Greeks which would tie in with wonder woman/girl. Kid Vigilante in both costume and mind. Attitude a bit rough as well as the execution, though reminiscent of Damien Wayne or Jason Todd. And then of course we have the Magician reminiscent of zatana/zatara. The most interesting addition is Yoshimi, small like the wasp but in control of a giant robot/armor. She reminds me of Wasp and Iron Man from Avengers. Everyone else fell flat for me, fodder as I like to call them.

Action- Blood, explosions, blood and did I mention blood? Yeah there’s allot of blood and some cool action scene to boot, this is sure to keep action junkies happy.

The Bad

Violence- Way way over the top, think mortal combat meets teen titans. This is not the series you should be reading with your kids. I also found some of the violence, just violence for the hell of it instead of adding to the narrative or enhancing the story, sometimes less is more guys.

The Ugly

An action packed if over the top opening issue though over the top is the style in which the creators have made this book, similar to kick ass. Add to this great art and colors and this book is a solid 3.5/5

    Meet the Danger Club! Art. The artist worked on books on Batman the Brave and the Bold, and the Supergirl Adventures book but boy does this book get gritty and he does a great job portraying the grit and violence. It's action-packed and gory. He does a good job making the characters look like actual teens. The designs are pretty cool as well. The artist does a great job portraying such a bleak world. Also the homage cover on the first page is an interesting idea and it's well done. ...

    Unsupervised children beat each other lifeless in an arena while the world around them burns.Fans of books like The Hunger Games may find this a familiar concept, but beyond that slight similarity, Danger Club is in a class of its own.We join the story already in progress and quickly learn that this world is having a really bad year.The superhuman protectors of the planet ventured off into space three months prior to deal with a cosmic-level threat. They have not returned.In their absence, the d...
