If you're just talking about the first 4-issue mini series, you might be right.
the first short story that resolves the babystabbing plotline was okay but I guess that's still just making your point.
personally, I think the One Shot was the best story so far and hope Pearson follows up on the world building he started there. A world where the corpses of deceased decommissioned Watchmen/Justice League alien heroes are being harvested by Scientologists and lethal force bounty hunters in a near-future urban hellscape can be interesting in it's own right. especially with Pearson drawing it. his art is great.
Panda and her huge tits are mostly cherry on top.
