C.O.W.L. (vol 1): Principles of Power - Kyle Higgins & Alec Siegel

Similar to Powers and Top 10, the series is about a Chicago law enforcement division, staffed by super powered and unpowered individuals, focusing on fighting supervillains. The added twist is that this world takes place in 1962, and has more of a grittier feel and deals with issues like labor relations--which makes sense since the acronym stands for Chicago Organized Workers League--(and a little bit about women's rights, but surprisingly nothing about race). The genre is not a favorite of mine, but it is enjoyable, with interesting characters, and good--if not necessarily original--plot. Unfortunately, I'm not a fan of Rod Reis's art and some of the coloring bothers me although both points are rather subjective. It's definitely worth looking at. COWL
