Who is I.O.? Well, like the the name suggests, they oversee international operations – in other words, they. Run. Everything.
The story is told in VERY cinematic terms; each panels serves as a frame of film, which is only effective some of the time. Sometimes, the frames in the center of a panning shot serve little to no purpose, other than to fill the gap between Points A and B. Think in terms of the old Batman TV series. The Batmobile goes roaring out of the Batcave, and is next seen arriving at Gotham City Hall. We don’t really need to be shown everything in between, do we?
I am uncertain if that is failing on the part of the writer’s art direction, or the artist’s own storytelling abilities. It’s so hard to discern when you’re reading only 1/24th of the overall story.
