September 16, 2012 - And so begins, or ends, or WHAT?
At this point, ANYTHING is better than Magnus, but FF really showed its chops this month.
Of course, it's 'Lozzi'
What a mess. The cover is decent. But this story. Jeez. Is ANYONE not fighting the Eternal Enemy right now? They have really spilled coffee all over the shared universe thing, eh?
This story is junk at its absolute best. And it's not getting much better. Painful, even.
The art is bad, the dialogue is slipshod, and the story is silly. Are they killing folks? Sure. Do I care? Not anymore. It's gotten so I have lost all impact - because these characters are meaningless. I have a far greater connection with Rai books now - and it's the bad part of its run, but getting better. Kill this story - and make the new Geomancer the new Geomancer already. Two MORE issues of this? Ugh.
vs the INHUMANS
A few changes in the book. Much closer art is a nice improvement, and the story is told better. The characters are starting to mature, but it isn't drastic changes. I don't like the overt references, but I like that the characters are getting a bit older - before the big stuff next issue.
How can you not like the Inhumans? Great characters - nice round villains without any real dark background or foreground. They are driven people - and upset when Maximus starts taking the lead - and even he tries to throw them off a bit, by passing the leadership to Black Bolt. He's one of the better characters introduced in the era, for certain. Next issue - BIG THINGS COMING!
