I think this book is going to win awards. If you're not boycotting Marvel at the moment, I recommend this comic.

In this issue we get a guest artist, Frazer Irving, who is cut from the same cloth as our regular artist. The book looks painted rather than drawn. The whole purpose of this issue is to give our regular artist a break. So it's filler. Yet I liked it. It's the story of the interstellar journey from the Jailer's world all the way to Earth. There's a stop-off on whatever world Monsteroso comes from. He's a giant monster who first appeared in October 1961, created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. Here's the Wikipedia entry:
Monsteroso

Apparently Monsteroso had been a prisoner of the Jailer, which is a chilling thought, as he's only a child. That the Jailer had children in his hellish grip is precisely the reason Crusher Kreel had no regrets when he gave his life to end the horror of that prison.

Other events occurred in this issue but I don't have anything particularly interesting to say about them. By the last page, we've arrived at Earth, and it looks like some fresh new trouble is about to begin.

Oh, and Lockjaw is healed. And the artist gets three demerits for depicting Black Bolt's power beams as emanating from his hands instead of from the gizmo on his brow.

Do you think you might give this book a try? I know the Reverend won't, but maybe someone will. I hope someone does. This book needs to continue for years.





I won't. The only upcoming Marvel title I may break my boycott for is MTIO #1. I can't support Marvel right now due to its horrendous and over-politicized direction - and of course for dropping the FF for so long.

I do take reviews from members here seriously though, and I appreciate your sharing your thoughts. I may peek at it when I am in the shop next.
