"It’s part of a tradition of stories that Emi [Lenox] and I both really enjoy, like Mean Creek and Stand By Me, where you have this group of kids who are confronted by something very dark and outside their experience. This thing it changes them and they aren’t equipped to deal with it because they’re children. It takes them them on a dark path and you get to follow them. The superhero stuff and more fantastic elements of the world are really background." -- Jeff Lemire

Well, that was cheerful.

I like comic books, most of them I am happy I got, a few I buy without knowing anything about, and am surprised. Henchgirl and Outlaw Nation to name just 2. this one I bought based on the rave reviews on the back cover.

This was the first non Garth Ennis comic book I wish I could unread.

Well, that was cheerful.
the backup story about Plutonia and her life is even more so, she is a waitress at a shitty diner, single mom, no reliable babysitter, and she is the world's greatest hero.

Say what you will about Ennis, but at least his critique of superheroes is more than “they’re shit” (well, most of the time, but at least those moments tend to have some humor and bite to them). This is just toothless.

The comic this reminds me of is 4 Kids Enter a Bank... except that was good.

This sure was a...thing.

What does the fly on the kids hand mean? I feel like it should mean something but I got nothing.

I took it to mean it as a parallel to Plutonia, implying that he has obtained super powers.

So the page before is that the other kid's body is missing, and so he either got picked up by Plutona or got powers too?

I'm pretty sure it shows that they buried him.

I'm often interested in those key decisions that the characters make that lead to the tragedy.

Very often in stories it seems like the key decision, the one that is a turning point that makes everything worse, is keeping something secret, rather than reporting it to the appropriate people.

If they had just called the police right away that whole situation could have been avoided.
