Kick-Ass: The New Girl #6: This was a great arc, first and foremost. I was cautiously hopeful when this was first announced, but this exceeded every expectation I had for it. It’s got all of the classic Kick-Ass hallmarks, but given a new, refined, filter and character focus. This conclusion to the first arc was both incredibly exciting and just a completely satisfying culmination of chaos and fresh direction. Won’t continue onto the Niles arc for now, maybe down the road if I hear good things.
The Wild Storm #15: Feels like a bit of a breather issue, but still does some neat things with John Lynch, setting up the Gens, and all of the other plot threads. After all, it’s a good choice to take some time and get a breather - see where everything stands. And this definitely feels like that sorta calm beat.
Mage: The Hero Denied #10: Not as exciting as the previous few issues, but it does take care of a hanging little plot conceit that I figure will be worth it in the long run.
The Magic Order #2: A beautiful, tense, and scathingly humorous in the way Millar can be, book. Loving it.
