I’m not a professional comic book writer, so perhaps there are nuances to it I don’t understand. But I do understand the nature of being an end-user. So to create a significant plot point, and then reveal its meaning six months later, seems excessive. What do you think this is, Castle?
But I do not fault Semper’s ambitious storyline, which leads to a much grander scale. Imagine Hal Jordan being the Green Lantern of Earth, only to later discover the Guardians and the rest of the Green Lantern Corps. It’s that kind of scale in this issue, even if it is little more than a variant on the evil twin concept.
Artwork has been serviceable. Sure, that’s faint praise, but my expectations are low where Cyborg is concerned. But as the scope of the book grows, longtime artists such as Allan Jefferson and Will Conrad seem up to the challenge.
