In this climactic final issue, Kelly and David fight a war on three fronts!
On one side there are malevolent immortals hungry for vengeance.
On the other, Dr. Tinker, who will let those immortals rip the city apart to get his hands on Kelly and David’s nanotech.
But the real war is Kelly and David’s fight with each other for control of the body they share… and their fate will, in turn, decide humanity’s!
The Super Powered FancastThe Story: The action-packed finale of this limited series wraps up neatly while setting the stage for a potential sequel. I really liked seeing the evolution of David and Kelly and was inspired by how they worked together. I appreciated how their love for each other ultimately allowed both personalities to thrive and I feel that lesson should be headed in real life relationships. The differing enemy groups were handled in a straightforward and intelligible manner, and I was impressed that the story never muddled them together, as they were each similar in their setups. I think the strength of this series is the team’s ability to present multiple characters in an easily distinguishable manner. I really enjoyed Duo and I hope that DC plans to continue their story in other narratives. The Art: This issue is filled with riveting action sequences in which detailed illustration focuses on both character and landscape. And as always, the lettering perfectly and easily captures the voices of multiple people in a cohesive manner, especially when it comes to the differing voices within Duo. Overall, I found the artwork engaging and transportive.
Comic WatchDuo has been a great series thus far. Greg Pak, Khoi Pham, Scott Hanna, Chris Sotomayor and Janice Chiang tell an excellent, heartfelt story and sets up a hopeful if difficult future for the rest of Earth M. With their fantastic art, storytelling and letters, this book is one that everyone should definitely seek out!
Lyles Movie FilesDuo proved an encouraging addition to the Milestone ranks. Hopefully it wont be long before David and Kelly interact with the characters from Dakota.
Geek DadDavid and Kelly, the two scientists sharing one body, have been played between two different mad scientists since the start of the issue. However, it feels like the real battle hereand the only really compelling part of the storyis their internal battle.
