Although a fun read, this series is Marvel’s latest sample of decompressed comics filled with padding that will eventually be released as a collected trade paper back. A decade ago, readers could get their money’s worth in comics. Not anymore. Writers barely write what once was but a prologue. No matter how cool the comic book is, filling it with void is a cheap trick to use on readers. I won’t bother sticking around for issue #2.
The artwork is flaming and has a nice colour pallette. The colourist should be credited for giving a 3D feel to the artwork.
