Though new-kid-in-town Oliver Leif is struggling to fit in – somewhat painfully – his athletic older brother is making friends and turning heads left, right and centre thanks to his football skills. While their mother – who has a drinking problem – is out ‘job-hunting’, the boys go to a party – but someone seems to be watching them very closely. Oliver’s secret, 15-minutes-a-day super powers may not be a secret for much longer…

Kaare Andrews has produced another brilliantly fast paced issue of E-Ratic with part 2; we keep hearing about a devastating event (which is where Oliver’s powers come from), and it’s an intriguing piece of world building that I’m very keen to discover more about. The character work is excellent, the action scenes kinetic and exciting – and the art is, as is to be expected given Andrews’ track record, absolutely superb.

Recommended for Teens and up, E-Ratic is shaping up to be another superb series from AWA/Upshot. It’s definitely off to a great start with the first two issues of the five part series. Though the cover art for issue two invites close comparisons with a certain red-and-blue costumed wallcrawler, the series feels very fresh so far without the derivative nature that the cover may imply. The shocking cliffhanger sets us up nicely for the third issue too. Great stuff.
