CBR Review: Sparta, U.S.A. #1

I recently reviewed Sparta, U.S.A. #1 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "The town of Sparta is centered on a few core ideas: being American, advancing through life via subterfuge, and football.

Every year, the Maestro, a tall, otherworldly blue man, brings children to bolster the population, given to the most deserving couples. The greatest football player to ever live in Sparta, Godfrey McLaine, disappeared three years ago and has returned to town with his skin bright red and bearing news of the outside world. Yeah, just a little weird."
