September 2, 2012 - A war for all TIME!
One is fine, but one is worse.
Giv eit to Gil
Better turns here.
I loved the direction that this comic is really turning. The visual storytelling is getting much better - flipping through was an easier trip than in the past, without getting too cluttered. Still MORE Eternal Enemy stories - and this might really be the best one of the bunch.
I like Gilad grouping up with the locals - both in the past and the present day story. This parallel was nice - much better than last month.
And seeing Gilad as fallible - even if not kill-able - was a good change. More stories should follow this line - instead of the always too tough to execute line. That's what a hero is, right? Able to win, but sometimes with costs.
Sealed in a new land
This book has everything it needs to succeed. Dr. Doom - one of the greatest villains of all time. A SUPER crossover. The revelation that Doom is actually a benevolent dictator -okay. Not TOO benevolent a dictator.
A trap is laid, and a Hitchcock like ending. But, it really doesn't work out.
I like the feuding of the group, but I found myself wandering about halfway through the book, wondering when the team would change again. I am getting bored with this set of characters. It just doesn't live up to the hype of the time.
Thank goodness along comes a savior -Wasp next issue!
