Coming to you from the creative team of Gail Simone and Freddie Williams II, The Movement has been an engaging story of the struggle against injustice on behalf of the little guy, the powerless and innocent. That is what we were introduced to in the first issue and the second as well. The little guy being this group of misfits who have taken it upon themselevs to make a difference. They’ve already sent a message by taking hostage two corrupt officers. This creates that environment where they have to question “How far are we willing to go?”, just to send a message to those in power.
For those who are fans of Runaways, you definitely feel the same vibe from this issue. You see how different they are from each other yet fight for the same cause. While the cause keeps them together, it doesn’t stop them from disagreeing with each other or creating unnecessary drama. All this is what Gail Simone gives us and more when you see the natural reactions from them as their backs are against the wall. We already see it now as they face the rainmaker, while Katharsis may very well be the traitor as they themselves argue about someone selling them out.
The art style is very simple, not to the point where you feel it can’t be taken seriously, but it’s styled in a way that makes you feel like they are young heroes.
