Giffen's involvement in the project is what led me to pick up this issue. I've always been a fan of his work, and I really like his current art style. Here he manages to evoke OMAC's creator Jack Kirby while remaining unmistakably and uniquely Giffen.
The story, "Office Management Amidst Chaos," begins with the headquarters of genetic research firm Cadmus coming under attack by a super powered intruder who identifies himself as OMAC. As he fights his way past Cadmus security down to the top secret lower levels and his real goal, the Cadmus Mainframe computer, we get a high speed tour of the world of this new series, introducing us to the characters, concepts, settings and a few mysteries that will, we assume, be fleshed out in future issues.
The main mysteries revolve around the orbiting satellite calling itself Brother Eye. Who or what is he and what's his beef with Cadmus? And why has he chosen Cadmus employee Kevin Kho to be his champion in the guise of OMAC?
As of now, I plan to be around for awhile to see these mysteries played out. This was a good, old fashioned solid super hero action tale with great art that left me wanting more and looking forward to next issue.
One other thing I'm wondering is if Giffen and DiDio are going to keep up the conceit of having the first letters of words in the individual issue's story title spell out OMAC. I hope they do. It would be one more thing to make this series stand out from the rest of the so-called New 52.
