April 24, 2012 - DANG!
But X-O is a better book. Chest and all.
Someone on the boards mentioned the size of Turok's chest on this book. Yes, it's quite imposing.
I always loved how the comic made Aric more than just a user of the armor. Really, he's a bad son of a gun when it comes to fighting. He nearly becomes a sacrifice to the queen, but pulls some serious attacks on the queen, and turns nearly everything around - getting saved by his friends.
Of course, his attacks are not all wondrous saves. Paul ends up needing his legs amputated.
But Randy and Aric end up where we knew they always would. Great book.
A new look
The scope and feel of the cover really changes on this issue. It quickly goes from looking like a sixties book to a seventies looking one.
The Iron Man story DOES have the feel of the seventies. Perhaps the line is changing - embracing some of the curve of the story. Versus Attuma - and trying to get a government contract at the same time.
Captain America story is noteworthy. Sad that the origin of Red Skull is told through a flashback, but at least we get to see it. I don't know how capturing Cap fits. If the story didn't have Cap trying to attack every four seconds during the discussion, I would have leaned toward it.
