The Champions #17

   This series seems to be flying beneath the radar for many, which is a shame, because The Champions is consistently excellent.

   This issue is no exception, as the superheroics give way to a horror story.

   (Don't worry, there are also superheroics, too, and lots of rescue efforts.)

   The team is recruiting young heroes to join their cause, but that drive has led them to neglect their teammate, Viv Vision - and at a time when she needs her friends the most.

   Alone and powerless, she's trapped by a powerful, emotionless enemy - how can she possibly survive?

   It's yet another terrific story by writer Mark Waid, with stunning, kinetic artwork by Humberto Ramos and Victor Olazaba.

   It's difficult to do "young heroes" well, and Waid is putting on a clinic here. Highly recommended!

Grade: A
