August 26, 2012 - To ARMS!
Better some good than almost none, right?
Arms is right. FALSE ones.
Start with. The art is just plain bad. BAD bad. Bad cover, bad interiors, rushed work. All until the end with that full page reveal. THAT is excellent. It has the tiny spot over it, but beauty.
The comic is good to fair. I didn't hate it. But it was messy. It resurrects another two characters that were probably dead - to kill one of them again. I liked Cinder in the early books, and his execution is put well. I like Bloodshot's ambiguity about his execution by the Harbinger foundation - or supposed execution, at least.
I also loved the DJ saying, is this right? A seven foot tall assailant with white skin, red eyes, and lighting bolts carved into his hair. But the rest of the book doesn't reallt measure up.
Finally? No, not yet.
One thing I hate is how these stories are written. The story quickly wraps up last month's crisis - in a silly manner, then BUILDS up the new crisis throughout the entirety of the story...
Only to resolve it quickly next issue. Ugh. This Sub-Mariner has a fantastic looking full-page art - but not a great story.
Hulk is a little different. He ends up going on the attack against nearly all of the world, and of course, ends up being transported forward into a far-flung future. Of course, right?
These stories have a lot of STAN written all over them, but I am uncertain if it really reflects everything.
