New Comics Wednesday Week 17 - Bendis! Maleev! Icon!

Words can not even begin to express how excited I am for this.  The dream team behind THE best run on Daredevil EVER (sorry Miller) re-unite (I'm not counting HALO or the Spider-woman mini-series) for a creator owned Icon series.

From a Newsarama interview:
She is a young Portland girl who finds herself shocked to be the victim of a very corrupt society that pushes her down pretty hard out of nowhere and ruins her life. Instead of taking it, she kind of stands up, looks around and realizes that the entire world is broken, that everything is broke. And with that comes the strength to fight back.

The fight becomes a push and pull between her point of view of what's wrong with the world and the status quo of how the world works, and what sparks out of it over the course of the first arc is an actual modern American revolution.

If this book is even half as good as Daredevil was, it will be the top of the read pile every month.
