About the Author:

Poul Anderson was one of the most prolific and popular writers in science fiction. He won the Hugo Award seven times and the Nebula Award three times, as well as the Grand Master Award of the Science Fiction Writers of America.  With a degree in physics, and a wide knowledge of other fields of science, he was noted for building stories on a solid foundation of real science, as well as for being one of the most skilled creators of fast-paced adventure stories. He was author of over a hundred novels and story collections, and several hundred short stories, as well as several mysteries and nonfiction books.

From Publishers Weekly:

This first album from the ongoing comic series shows a gloomy future for superheroes. After Astonishman (a Superman stand in) was tricked into releasing a cloud of mutating radiation, many humans died while several gained superpowers. Most of the newly empowered survivors chose to make themselves masters of Earth under master villain Dead Lexington (read Lex Luthor); only a few joined a desperate little band fighting against the overwhelming forces of evil. In this story arc, the band tries to recover a magical talisman, the hammer of Thor, but discovers that Thor has been resurrected as a malevolent, incredible hulk who kills Astonishman. The apparently hopeless struggle continues from there. Though it feels closer to Warhammer's mood, the book explicitly demands to be compared with Watchmen, and some pages do look like Dave Gibbons's art while the script sometimes sounds like Alan Moore's writing. So far, however, a comparison shows how much more efficient Gibbons's art is and how much better Moore handles pacing, characterization and overall content. (Jan.)
