    Chuck's Comic Of The Day

    I’m all for epic storylines, and I’ve been enjoying this one – until this issue. I assume it’s just a glitch (or perhaps a failure on my part to sort it out properly), and I’ll certainly keep hanging on to see how this plays out – but they’re not making it easy on us.

    Pacing issues aside, this book is still one of the most thought-provoking on the shelf with its emphasis on morality and multidimensional theory that feels more genuine and grounded than such things generally do in comics. Much in the same way that gravity has recently been leant to the notion of time travel in the Marvel U, I feel like other dimensions and the consequences of what happens therein havent been the focal point of comics in this way since the early days of Exiles. The visuals are beautifully apropos and, apart from what I mention above, very clear and flowing. This is one of the most thought-provoking superhero books on the shelf.

    However, the slow opening segment take sits toll on everything. For one thing, Simone Bianchi is not an artist well-suited to dialogue-driven comics. He’s not particularly skilled at facial work, instead focusing on surreal design work and other elements that don’t come into play until midway through the comic. The other problem is that a key fight scene happens entirely off panel because of the lack of space. It makes for a jarring transition, and it’s not hard to imagine how this issue might have played out with a more focused, purposeful approach.
