I loved Silencer, personally! No slight toward anyone who didn't care for it. I like that these books seem to be building off of the corners of the DCU, but not directly to the big three.
That said, I didn't care much for Damage.
Yeah, Damage is the sort of book that I'd have to hear some great things about before I gave it a try since on its face, a book about a Hulk-like character has little appeal for me. That said, I heard there was some sort of a shout-out to 90s Damage Grant Emerson in the book. Was he mentioned, either as a story point or an Easter egg?
