Had read some good things about the Gauntlet series, but the beginning was not very reassuring. A couple of relatively weak stories with the first one showing Elektro as "the man of the people" who pretty much just causes chaos and another story of Sandman trying to be a father after having kidnapped his child from her grandmother. Neither one is a very convincing story and a weak beginning for "The Gauntlet".
The art style is very bad - someone left the trainees to draw some pictures and try to learn their craft. Perhaps it is an investment for the future, but I'm not sure they should be allowed to drew comics that are meant to be published.
