I'm not sure what to think about this issue, I'm wavering between
whether it truly has merit or whether it just doesn't make the grade.
The story itself seems a bit useless. Personally I feel this build
up to a showdown with T-Ray is taking a bit long and I'm getting very
Good Points: But there are some good things. On the plus
side this issue returns the reader to the merry world of the 3 L's.
We get to see what's been happening with Zoe, who seems to have
become a 'company' girl. And throughout the issue we see some of
the dangling plot threads involving her and Monty in particular
We also get to see some funny moments as well. Now I may be just
a simple lad, but I like the 'explodey-head' guy (or Herbet) and
find the slap-stick comedy he provides funny. There is also Deadpool's
actions during his jail break that provide a laugh or two.
Finally, sometime during this issue I actually started to feel
that I cared about what would happen with this whole Mercedes plot.
Bad Points: As I said at start, bring on T-RAY already.
Sure this issue was good, but I've been expecting to see a showdown
or at least some interaction with T-Ray for the last 2 issues at
least! If it doesn't happen next issue... I'm gonna... aww I don't
know, wait until it does happen?!
I won't say much about the art, except that I think I've actually
come to the decision that I actually like Pete Woods art after all.
Sure I like McDaniel's better, but Pete's art is better than a lot
of other stuff.
Finally, I think that it's showing that Joe Kelly is coming to
the end of his run. It shows in how a lot of things seem to be happening,
but that aren't really having the same effect as they used, because
they seem a bit rushed and not as dramatic as they could be. I think
Kelly is just chucking in a lot of story elements that he wanted
to use eventually, but since his leaving, has just seemed to throw
it all in.
