December 24, 2013 - Depths of...
I wouldn't choose.
What in the world?
Okay. I give this thing credit for really working to wrap up the story. It could have been left of to dangle like so many lost sections of trashed universes, abandoned comic companies, or junked things. But this one is working so hard on telling the entirety of the story. Background, explanation - and even conversations between characters trying to fill in gaps of the story from one huge lost chunk to another. Instead of showing the characters DOING that thing.
I haven't much liked Turom since it made the jump - and I thought I would hate it a LOT more at the beginning - but it wasn't until it rolled up much of it into the whole story almost for kids that it really hit the bricks hard.
Then, it flipped over halfway through the tale - and started filling in giant sections of the story with no fill - and what in the world? Then the series ending on the pregnancy cliffhanger? Uh. Okay.
The pasts of darkness
This one gets back to the old, silly Silver Surfer stories. After a quick nod to the last issue - a section that I actually looked upon favorably - the comic turned to garbage. The art was much poorer. In fact, last issue, a reference or two was made to Surfer looking white. In this issue, I felt like he actually DID look pale.
The story put him in an alternate universe - after exceeding the speed of light... And crossing over... Boy - that does sound just as bad as it sounds.
At the end, he's able to go back the other way - like Superman - and erase the change. And then wakes up from a dream... Or was it a dream? (headslap)
Wow. It really says something when the alien story at the end under the guise of the Watcher - and invading via televisions is on par with the rest of the comic. Yikes.
