That is one ugly cover.  Dale Eaglesham's work has seen better days.  You mean to tell me that he couldn't think of anything else to take up the inside of the Maple Leaf except curls of hair?  Terrible.

Cool idea. I see the (anti)Sasquatch, the (anti)Shaman and I assume the main woman in pic is the (anti)Heather/Vindicator 2, but is the other, shiny silver character suppose to represent the (anti)Box or is it perhaps the (anti)Vindicator 1?

I doubt it is the (anti)Puk  Cheesy

This seems to be the book everyone "wants" to read and like but no one wants to commit to buying.  Myself included.

It started as a series, changed to an 8 issue maxi, then back to an ongoing.
Once I knew it was back "on", I picked up the back issues. So, yes, I am actually buying/reading it.
Decent story, very nostalgic, but not so great art.
