I’m really interested to see where this story’s going. I thought the point-of-view was extra curious, considering I don’t think those policemen and their captain are going to be the main characters. Though they’ll probably reappear.

There’s definitely some superpowers happening here. Sure each member of the Movement has their own powers, but there’s something with those masks and technology.

Looking forward to getting to know the main characters and their motivations. I’m really liking Virtue so far.

While I think it’s a smart move that Simone jumped into the big part of this story, I am craving some background on these characters. I want to know more about their inner motivations. While I’m sure everything will get there eventually, I’m wondering if she didn’t jump the gun here a bit.

Virtue remains my favorite character. It’s probably not surprising that I love the character who seems to be most about justice. And who’s pretty fucking powerful. They certainly do have a moral dilemma about keeping those police officers locked up.

Mouse is kind of gross.

Katharsis seems to be getting herself into a bit of trouble by going after James Cannon. Certainly a guy who’s been expecting them to show up and appears to have unlimited resources is going to make sure that it’s a trap, no matter when they show up.

Curious if Rainmaker will join the group. They call her a witch, but she looks closer to the Movement than not.

I’m finding myself not a huge fan of Williams’ art. In some panels, it’s okay, especially upon close-ups. But the very sketchy style he does during battle scenes tends to get things pretty messy and make them not clear. Though I do suppose that battles aren’t supposed to be clean.

I like that they quickly found Rainmaker’s weak spot. And I felt very bad for the homeless fellow who was killed by the serial killer. Anytime there’s a pet involved, just look for my waterworks.

Burden certainly has a few more issues. Just a couple.

Does this mean James Cannon is the killer? Or that he’s controlling or created the killer for a means to his end? Ironic that Katharsis was right about where she headed.

Captain Meers should really know better than to say no to Virtue.
