If you missed #1...
And now...

Ant-Man 002

A fun read. A fun direction for Scott - and his quirky new employee, Griz. A fun mystery guessing game as to the Golden Age identity of Mrs. Morgenstern - who seemingly dealt with the issue's evil robot during WWII. A fun one-word cameo by Tony Stark - following up on the last issue. A fun foe for every Ant-man so far coming next issue.

The only NOT fun moment was the 'relapse' moment the writer felt was organic decision to include. It felt... off. Thankfully, it proved a passing moral stumble. Hmmm, was the whole time with the NewFF charity superhero/teacher work?

Links served up just for y'all (if you like this sort of thing)...

> Ant-Man #2 (Published by Marvel Comics; Review by Oscar Maltby; 'Rama Rating: 7 out of 10): With the threat of unemployment and the pressure of fatherhood looming, Ant-Man needs cash. Summarizing the plot of Ant-Man #2 would resemble superheroic mad-libs, if not for Nick Spencer's dense and joke-filled script. Jordan Boyd's colors lend a flat, almost cell-shaded quality to Ramon Rosanas' technically solid art, which seems a little sparse on detail. Spencer writes Scott Lang as a lovable mess, and you can't help start pulling for him as he frenetically bounces from wacky villain to wacky villain. Finally, a menacing final splash page provides a solid cliffhanger that'll ensure a returning readership. Simple but clear artwork and a script heavy on laughs make Ant-Man a book to watch.

I miss Dad and Dan.

I'm really not liking the direction of this series. Scott Lang is so much better than this. It just seems like Spencer has gutted the recent histories of the characters.

And so... Scott's now responsible for a guy's death.

Where's the fun?
