    I read these comics when they were originally released in 1997 from Rob Liefeld's Awesome studio, and they were some of the most enjoyable and imaginative around. The writer was Jeph Loeb (and this probably means Kaboom was my introduction to his talents) and the creator was artist Jeff Matsuda, a dynamo whose visions exploded all over every page. They joined forces to tell the story of Geof Sunrise, an ordinary kid who inherits "mitts" that gave him access to the Kaboom Cycle. Jeph, Jeff and Ge I read these comics when they were originally released in 1997 from Rob Liefeld's Awesome studio, and they were some of the most enjoyable and imaginative around. The writer was Jeph Loeb (and this probably means Kaboom was my introduction to his talents) and the creator was artist Jeff Matsuda, a dynamo whose visions exploded all over every page. They joined forces to tell the story of Geof Sunrise, an ordinary kid who inherits "mitts" that gave him access to the Kaboom Cycle. Jeph, Jeff and Geof plunged into the story right away, encountering Japanese saxophone-playing mentor Zang and attempting to figure out how to deal with big bad Scarlett and his cronies in The Nine. Geof's mother was his predecessor, although by the time of this story she's gone, much like his brother, and even his father is teased as being connected to all of it...The real problem is that the story skirts at the surface of everything rather than plunging in. Geof is plunged in, sure, and so are we, but there's a real reluctance to explore any of it rather; the impulse is always to introduce and bewilder. A follow-up mini-series with a different artist, introducing another protagonist named Kyra Knight (years before we knew about Keira Knightley, I might add), doesn't do much more. This is the problem of trying to be too ambitious with a small publisher. But it remains fascinating and memorable.

    This fun series is big, over the top, doesn’t take itself too seriously and really handles an origin story very well. Big splashy panels are alternatively filled with traditional superhero fights and an origin story brimming with information and humour. Above all, this was great fun to read.
