I read this because it was available on Kindle Unlimited. It’s a story about a team of misfit heroes who get vilified as criminals. I liked the art, but I’ve always been a fan of Fiona Staples, and some of the character concepts are weird in a fun way. Unfortunately, this felt like the first volume in an apparently canceled series that never got past the setup. ( )

If you’re looking for a quick, action-packed, funny comic about a secret society with some super-hero/mutant-esque characters, then this is it. Mystery Society doesn’t take itself too seriously. It’s a high-tech, low stakes, easy to enjoy little romp about a husband and wife who start a team to track down paranormal secrets. There’s a bit of the found-family theme here too.

Come for the mystery, stay for Secret Skull and Verne. Seriously, I would love a Secret Skull spinoff series. I would love this comic as a Netflix series actually, but only if they did it right! No stupid CGI mask for Secret Skull.

As usual, I love Staples’s work and that’s the main reason I wanted to read this, though I do love the oddball group with various skills and powers coming together to fight crime/solve mysteries/fight the patriarchy, etc. Sadly there seems to only be this one volume comprised of five issues. I really wish there were more! ( )

1.5 stars, rounded down.

Not much to say about this one, except "Avoid it".

Edit: Actually, I'll say a little bit more. If you are looking for a (very) cheap knock-off/modern retelling of Alan Moore's [b:The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Vol. 1|297627|The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Vol. 1|Alan Moore|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1327894724s/297627.jpg|797], then this graphic novel is right up your alley. I'm not sure if author Steve Niles intended that, or if he even knew what he was going for (modern-age steampunk?) as he wrote this, but it didn't really work for me at all. The artwork was sort of *bleh*, too. ( )

I love Fiona Staples artwork. And the plot/character design in this is not as bad as people seem to be complaining. I would totally read another one of these if I could find it. ( )

This is the kind of story I love. A couple, owners of a niche bookstore specializing in myths and legends, come into a fortune and start a group to seek out the weird truths in the world, the Mystery Society.

The story opens as Nick and Anastasia, our lovely, loving couple, seek out one of these weird truths and begin active recruitment. Along the way they manage to piss off the US Government and two new recruits search for the stolen skull of Edgar Allan Poe. This is pure fun right from the jump and I really hope there is more in the future.

Steve Niles and Fiona Staples have created a very cool, weird world, and I want to spend more time in it. ( )
