Description

— What if only the rich had superpowers? —

Ten years ago, the US government found a way to manufacture super powers but the high cost of production meant that only the rich could afford the procedure.

Once loved and respected, superheroes now struggle to stay relevant in a world that has reduced their abilities, to the mundane. Today, only a single superhero team still exists in all of America, and even their days seem numbered.

But as tensions begin to rise between the powered and non-powered communities, our heroes will once again see themselves thrust into the spotlight, just not in the way they expect…

    Great read! I did not know what to expect going into More Than Men, but I can say it was More than I expected! Good pacing, fun art and an interesting story. Looking forward to the next issue!

    A superhero comic for the folks who dig the Watchmen, Xmen and with a bit of Marvel Civil War thrown in as well. But still doing its totally own thing with the powers genre. Plus adding elements I feel I’ve never seen before, like a super hero task force of police officers. Right on. And even doing the ballsy choices that blockbuster stories would avoid. Always gotta like ballsy now. I’ll let you fine folks see that stuff when you get there. I also dig the hard R take right off the bat so you know what you are getting into. Topped off with superb artwork to boot. This book is it! So come grab yourself a copy, you’ll be glad you did. And don’t fret. This is not your normal superhero story and that is a good thing.

    Super glad to have picked up More Then Men, as I don’t often read superhero comics in general but this proved to a fun read. With an interesting twist on the genre, it launches you into a dense story setting with great pace and character. Fun art and slick colours. I was genuinely surprised and elated by it. Definitely worth a read!

    I really try to be objective when reviewing comics, and I often hesitate on giving a book a maximum star review in expectation that SOMETHING isn’t as good as it could be. However, in the case of More Than Men, I must submit to 5 stars.

    Having no idea what this book was going to be about, other than the assumption that it was “another super hero book”, greatly played on my enjoyment of this first issue. The world set up is a bleak near-future, where more people aside from costumed crime fighters have special powers. the police have them. Waitresses have them. Innocent bystanders have them. To be honest, I haven’t quite seen an approach to this before, and it was refreshing. Evan Waterman puts a neat spin to the idea of “Super Hero Fatigue”, a common criticism that’s not just expressed in today’s movie-going audiences, but indie creators as well. However in this book, where super heroes exist, it’s the public who have begun to tire, and it brings all kinds of real-world situations in to it from jurisdiction to commercialization. This first issue plays out like a really good TV show premiere, setting up the characters well, and then delivering a shocking cliffhanging climax at the end.

    The art by Butch Mapa is stellar. It’s not overly-stylized, nor is it hyper-detailed, but it’s clean and engaging, made further engrossing by the superb colors of Fahriza Kamaputra and Valerie St. Gelais. I learned a few things just by quickly studying a panel in terms of effective techniques.

    I highly recommend to anyone looking for a fresh idea in the super hero genre to buy this book. I am now eagerly waiting to see where this story goes!

    “More than men” is a mature take on the superhero genre. It follows a group of superheroes struggling with not only upholding the law, but also their dying reputations and adapting to a changing society. The art is stellar. Rich in detail with a good eye for composition. All the anatomy and perspective look professionally done with real effort put in to it. The story flows well with well-staged action scenes and all the dialogue sounds natural. What I liked best is that the characters were sympathetic people with problems you could relate to. Faith’s scene with the dog in particular stood out to me and was a strong emotional moment.
