Valiant High #2 (of 4)

   This is definitely a different version / alternate universe / teen drama take on the characters in the Valiant Universe.

   Valiant High places (mostly) younger versions of heroes like Ninjak, X-O Manowar, the Eternal Warrior, Livewire, Faith, Armstrong and Archer in a high school setting - but don't expect Archie-like antics, because it's not really played for laughs.

   Instead it's more of a teen romance / adventure saga, perhaps more in the vein of the original X-Men, as powered teens are sent to a special school to hone their skills.

   Of course, there's plenty of romantic interest, misunderstandings between friends and a mystery or two to keep things cooking along.

   Obviously, this kind of story isn't aimed at a geezer like me - but if you enjoy Riverdale and that sort of thing, this should be right in your gearhouse.

Grade: B
