What happens next in the series is anybody’s guess. The story is far from over, and at this pace, it could be another six issues before we see the end. If the artwork is any indication, artist Michael Avon Oeming is equally unenthused. It seems as if he has begun taking an easier path in his illustrations; they don’t seem as ambitious as they once did.
One aspect of this book I haven’t addressed in detail is the back-up feature. It seems aimed at older readers, capitalizing on the Super Powers line of toys and old Super Friends cartoon. I can’t say that I’m seeing much of a story here, as there seems to be sudden leaps from Point G to Point M in the overall narrative.
As I said, I’m eager for this book to reach its conclusion, or perhaps follow a new trajectory. Were I not reviewing the book, I doubt very much I’d continue reading it. I certainly wouldn’t be paying $3.99 for it.
