December 21, 2012 - A change of focus
EW, that is.
Amazingly sweet cover.
If I had been in a comic shop at the time, there is no WAY I could have let it sit on the shelf without at least thumbing through the thing. No WAY!
Also important to note that the third part of the story is within the Birthquake line. For the most part, I don't remember reading any of it - but this section is quite excellent.
Birthquake wasn't so much a crossover as just a change to the line itself. I applaud the company for trying to do something, but the line - through its own death knell - was killing itself, really.
I liked how both stories hit their parallel conclusion, and would read them again.
The mighty leave, return, and fall.
The book quickly eliminates Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch - thankfully. The book then turns focus - to just about everything in the world. It feels a lot like the review of Chevy Chase's book in the Funny Farm "I think there was even a flash SIDEWAYS..."
Swordsman, Power Man, and Black Widow. Goliath somewhere else, Hawykeye, and perhaps anybody else conscious is shown - just for a bit - as Hank turns himself around the world to try and find a cure in a somewhat abandoned castle.
Felt a lot like a holding pattern before the next comic, and not much at all like a real book. Too bad.
