Man of Steel #4 and #5 - I’m going to be honest; I’m finding this a bit of a chore now. The art by Kevin Maguire and Adam Hughes, respectively, was really pretty. But, I’m just bored with the Rogol Zaar storyline, and every single time Hal Jordan is on screen the energy is just completely sucked out of proceedings. I want more of the Planet, more of Melody, and more of the smaller human stories. I’ll give the regular books a try, but I’m not exactly hopeful at this stage.
Captain America #704 was the final part of an interstellar war between humanity, the Red Skull, and the Kree Empire. It was also really boring.
Thankfully, The Wild Storm #14 was up to its usual high standards in terms of writing and art. The highlight being the Lynch and Fairchild segment; Ellis has put a great spin on the original Gen 12/ 13 storyline here. Providing connective tissue to the ongoing Michael Cray storyline too. I say again, I cannot see how this series can wrap up in just 10 more issues. And, where are the other spin off books?
