Comic Review - Albion

I've read Albion over a dozen times now, and I'm still not sure how to evaluate it. I'll admit I was expecting something a little more straightforward, possibly Watchmen for British superheroes. That said the premise itself isn't really the problem. The central concept is that all the heroes were real, and have been hidden away in a prison in Scotland by the government, while the daughter of the deceased Eric Dolman and a Scouse comic fan named Danny try to break them out. Moreover, this plot more or less works.
