This super-sized issue written by Chris Claremont and drawn by David Nakayama was rather disappointing. The story wandered in too many places and several times I thought a page was missing as it skipped ahead of itself quite suddenly at times. The art was decent but not enough to warrant interest in this book by itself despite an inspired cover and overall lacked direction towards the end.

The story started out pretty nicely with a teenage genius named Hiro introduced as a main character but we will lose focus on him by the end. He is part of a Japanese super-team called big Hero 6 who are assigned to protect a scientist in New York. To do this they enroll in high school (?) so that they can play football (?) while a villain attacks the scientist at his island laboratory (!). Meanwhile a new member to the team is introduced out of the blue and it turns out he is also a student/football coach at this American high school (no idea why the Japanese government recruits American high school students into their superhero team but if you can accept that playing football out of sight of the scientist you are supposed to be protecting is a valid plan for a teenage robot building super-genius then your okay with the rest of it.)

I had to quit reading it by part 4. There are enough books of better quality to waste time with finishing this one.
