A cover blurb from Laurel Maury at NPR proclaims this book "far edgier than almost anything you'll see in literature right now." Maybe the "literature" on her nightstand, but in superhero comics, we've been facing the end of the world repeatedly for decades, and this book just does another turn in the same old dance.
