December 6, 2013 - Pulled a fast one.
Quantum & Woody crush. It's a shame to compare this to anything.
Somehow, I forgot.
And how I could forget perhaps the most iconic defining moment of Woody's life - being flipped back - and pushed onto himself - while in Quantum's body... Okay. It makes sense now (carry the one...)
Yes, this comic had a brilliant ability to balance the extremely strange - even Vincent had a great little moment in this one. And this strange sense of where everything was going and coming to - all at the same time. Just re-defining this place - even for a bit of a moment - flipped the entirety of the script on Woody. Again.
These kids are seriously troubled. And beyond most of what was put together - the senseless faux super bit... This one hit a home run again. And this little bit of a story may be the strongest moments of a great series.
This story exists on its own
And it's nice to see an on its own kind of story - but the book really closes off a few of the story parts from the last issue. Jonah is still out of the office, Spider-Man has an opportunity to clean up his image - and the tablet gets deposited back into the hands of Captain Stacey.
It really starts to feel connected beyond the pages of the story - and these changes could become permanent in this era - and work along the lines - continuing the transition - or perhaps leading the way forward.
Dialogue has become narrower - and art retained its larger set-up. Fewer panels, larger pics, and richer information. Of course, it featured the conflict between two heroes - and resolving it within the pages. But not a bad book.
