18 years ago, a strange crystal touched down in San Francisco and every pregnant woman in the area gave birth. These were no ordinary children, though, as each but one was gifted an extraordinary power. Used by society for entertainment, these special children live in a form of slavery with no rights, except the ability to compete in the Games. Growing up powerless, Tommy Watts is the only one of these children not to have any special gifts, but when he accidentally steps into the arena it might just be down to him to save the world.

Jonathan Ross blends a bunch of concepts together to come up with a half-baked idea that lacks originality and depth. While there are a couple concepts that are worthwhile, most of those aren't original. I'm not sure if this was designed to be a limited series because it definitely felt cramped and might have been better served to be longer so characters could be less one-note. Bryan Hitch is Bryan Hitch so there are a ton of double page spreads and big scenes. Sometimes it works, sometimes it misses. Overall, I just think the book lacked individuality. I felt I've read better versions of it.
