Writer: J. Michael Straczynski
Artist: Chris Weston
The adventure for the reader is in learning more about the individual characters, rather than marveling at the heroic or not so heroic exploits. What I enjoy about Straczynski's work is his ability to dig into the personal insecurities of his super-powered beings. A superhero team is hardly a new idea but the writer's investment in each member is deep in The Twelve, just as it is for Rising Stars.
Weston's art is vivid and engaging throughout. I'm also very impressed with the cover art. The image at the top of my post is from issue #1, cover art by Kaare Andrews. Andrews also did the covers for #2-4. Here's #2:
