Orlando and Foreman bring Electric Warriors to a strong finale this issue. And they set up exactly what I had been hoping they set up. No, this is not a lead in to an ongoing Legion of Super-Heroes series, even though I wished that it had been. But it does lay groundwork for such a book, hopefully in the near future.
Bringing in Superman and Lex Luthor in the previous issue was a risky decision. They were fun to see, but could easily have overpowered the new characters in this final issue. I am very pleased to state that this does not happen. Yes, they are critical to the resolution of the plot, but this is still the Electric Warriors book.
Foreman has done an excellent job with the art on this series, and I really love the evocative, 70’s style lettering on the page where the two brothers right it out. At least, I think it’s meant to evoke the 70s. Maybe Foreman had a different idea. I don’t care. It’s still fun to look at.
As before, I have the same small complaint, the lack of Kamandi elements. I almost wish the series hadn’t introduced that factor at the start, since it got all but dropped as the book went on. Perhaps, if there is a sequel series, we will get more humanistic animals in this world.
Could the series go on? I certainly wouldn’t mind if it did, but I suspect that this was intended to be complete in and of itself. My reasons for thinking this have a lot to do with the last page of the issue. And once again I have got myself in a bind, as I cannot actually bring myself to reveal what is on that page, so cannot fully explain what I mean.
But really, either way works for me. I would enjoy reading more adventures with these characters, or I could happily view this as a chapter in the future history of the DC universe, since it has turned out to be a vital part of that.
