Penultiman Vol 1
From the pages of the AHOY interactive sensation STEEL CAGE! Penultiman, The Next-To-Last-Stage In Human Evolution, is the greatest, best-looking, and most admired super-hero in the world! So how can he stop hating himself? His android understudy, Antepenultiman, thinks he knows the answer! Created by Tom Peyer (THE WRONG EARTH) and Alan Robinson (PLANET OF THE NERDS).
As with most books that nether overwhelm, nor underwhelm, I don’t have a ton to say about this series about a super hero that’s been kicked back to our more primitive time period from a far future where he was created by mistake by a confused parental unit. The story is solid enough, though I’m not sure I’m on board with exactly how the entire thing was laid out. Perhaps more words would have portrayed his inner emotional state better, but I found myself not caring about the character at all by the end of the series, wishing instead that he had disappeared into the woods and permitted his robot companion to take over superhero duties.
