I am a huge fan of steampunk so this is right down my alley. I love the world that has been created by Bill Willingham and the changes necessitated by this world to these familiar characters are clever and enjoyable. Sergio Davila delivers fantastic art that captures both the spirit of the steampunk look as well as the superhero one. It has a slight League of Extraordinary Gentlemen feel to it, but in a good way.
The characters may only be vaguely familiar to you unless you are a really hardcore comic fan. As such, some if not all of the changes may go over your head lessening their impact and appeal. If you have seen the trailer for this comic or have a vague notion of who will eventually appear in this series you may be disappointed to find out not all of the characters debut in this issue.
This book is a love letter to both steampunk and the old Dynamite heroes. With a fantastic art style, an interesting premise, and an intriguing plot the only reason not to pick this book up is if you have no idea who any of these characters are, although you should do yourself a favor and find out then pick up this comic. Personally, I can't wait to see the introductions of the Six Million Dollar Man and Zorro and find out who the mysterious villain ends up being.
