Good? Bad? Constructive criticisms?

I liked Riri's line threatening Doom if he was responsible for Stark's disappearance.

Other than that it felt like waaaayyy too much time spent protecting money and not nearly enough trying to save a person. This was subplot material padded to the length of the bulk of the issue, while the emotional meat of the story was relegated to a tiny subplot.

Basically, ninety percent of the issue was Riri and Amanda protecting billions of dollars. As someone who is highly unlikely to ever see even one-percent of that kind of money, it's not something that left me feeling emotionally invested.

Almost the entirety of this issue should have just been a couple of pages of the supporting characters struggling to protect money.

The rest of the issue should have been divided between Stark trying to escape from wherever and Riri doing detective work, trying to save Stark. Maybe have Stark save some innocent, readily empathetic fellow prisoners along the way.
