    What begins as a mysterious explosion and court case in the life of superhero mediocrity, quickly unfolds into adventure and existential introspection Much like Watchmen, only cheesier, it s about humanizing heroes, social depravity, and the folly of violence One of Tim Sale s earlier works, his illustrations range from serviceable to exquisite, often giving impression over clarity, but are sometimes brilliantly creative, ethereal, complexly paneled, and spilling over the page.

    The Challengers of the Unknown are a Silver Age property that should have died in the 60 s Sorry I like Kirby s campy sci fi adventures in spirit, but any attempts to modernize or god forbid, darken their stories have failed to make any lasting impact A big reason is because they ve been overshadowed by their most obvious comics parallel, the Fantastic Four Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale s Challengers series from 1991 their first collaboration doesn t do the team any favors The story entirely removes the fun aspect, splitting up the Challengers after a brutal crisis occurs on Challenger Mountain Loeb and Sale s storytelling is very fractured with lots of try hard experimentation, almost like they felt they had to prove themselves to DC fans I m a big fan of continuity, but most of the references and cameos feel awkward and out of place And Loeb tries to give the Challengers distinct personalities, though none of them really stand out.This is an odd little book that I can t bring myself to recommend For the Challengers of the Unknown to work in the modern era, I think you have to embrace the Silver Age campiness and go full on pastiche Even then, I m not sure how good a Challs series would be.

    Massively historically significant for me as it s the first team up between Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale who are easily in my top 10 writers artists respectively And naturally their team ups are all awesome I d only ever read a Neil Gaiman one off Challengers story and based off what I knew of Kirby s book it was a big, fun, bold, pulpy adventure series and I figured Jeph Loeb would come in and do much the same here But Frank Miller d the fuck out of it and it was just as great in a different way Think of it as their Unforgiven story Or the Dark Challengers of the Unknown Return Fun to see Loeb and Sale when they re not quite as refined.
