I'll admit it, I've given this series some harsh words. I wasn't big on its use of Luke Cage, I was getting bored with it seeming to meander about, and it didn't seem to have a focus, as if David Liss didn't know where he was taking the story. Then I see Spider-Man on this cover and expect some lame team-up issue that will be dull and cliche. Well, I"m not above admitting I was horribly wrong and this was an incredibly awesome comic.
A ton of story is jammed into these pages, with all the things that seemed pointless actually all coming together as important now. The weird way the story spent time with that woman who had a crush on our main character? That has a twist I didn't see coming. The youngest child of the mobster Vlad? We learn there is a lot more to him too? Oh and Vlad? Well, he just keeps becoming more and more interesting, showing that despite being foolish in some ways (thinking Black Panther killed his wife despite everyone pointing out it doesn't make sense) he is cunning and genius in others.
|Trouble is clearly brewing between T'Challa and the other heroes.
5 out of 5 stars.
