    I'm more excited for this book than I have been for anything in years.

    I am with you. It is weird because I can't pinpoint exactly why I look forward to this book so much, but I really do.

    Aaaand, this book is amazing. It combines two of my favorite things (comics and football) and does it perfectly. The villains are a high school football coach and his team? Yes, please.

    I love the protagonist. It's his fate to hit some school football players with the God enhanced baseball "bat".

    He is the hero they deserve, the "Bat Man".

    Unsurprisingly, I loved issue 2. Loved it, loved it, loved it.

    I'm not sure how I feel about the baseball bat appearing in the wreckage of the tree after the lightning bolt, but I love everything else about this book. It's got the vibe of a great western like "Unforgiven", but in a setting that is woefully underused in modern fiction.

    How great of a name is "Coach Boss" for a bad guy?

    Pretty damn great!

    I wasn't sold after issue 1 but issue 2 was great. On board for the long haul. The art is gritty and so perfect for this book and the story seems to be picking up to a good pace. Looking forward to the real action beginning next issue.
