May 17, 2013 5:17 pm I've got to say, the HORRIBLE HORRIBLE Franglais Byrne uses on page 2 "Vous etes tous droits?" (I assume that was supposed to mean "Are you all right?" really bummed me out. Unless some French speaker tells me otherwise (and I'm fairly fluent), I can't even begin to imagine where he got that "translation"..? Someone please tell me I'm wrong. The actual flare event was pretty horrific. Not enough here for me to get issue #2, although I will say I liked the Pope and submarine bits. Overall though, it was off-putting. Character scenes in the skylab seemed forced, and it was too many characters to get used to at once. I wish John Byrne would get an editor and writer. He artistically still has alot to contribute, but his writing skills have really degenerated, it is hard to believe this is the guy who wrote some of my favorite stuff years ago. Funny how the leader looked like Byrne, but all buffed out!
May 17, 2013 9:44 am I hope the author explores the moral ambiguity between the "villain's" actions and his own next issue, and it isn't just a tussle with a few throwaway lines.
May 16, 2013 11:51 am Book ended very well. Nicely done. Amethyst really came across as bad-ass in this...and I LOVE when the heroes actually have a real plan, instead of just go punch somebody in the nose. I love the Mom, Aunt, and the supporting cast. I also think they left nice toys for future creators to play with. THANKS MARX, LOPRESTI, and everyone else who made this fan happy with every issue. Great job.
May 16, 2013 11:48 am I like your idea, "the Sliding Adventures of Logan and Sue"
CANCELPOCALYPSE! DC Brings The Hammer Down on LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES, THRESHOLD, DEMON KNIGHTS, & DIAL H
May 16, 2013 11:41 am Me too, collecting Demon Knight in trade. DC should not hesitate to publish the trades when ready and then add those numbers to the monthly take before cancelling. Instead, they seem to have needless, enormous delays before printing the trade...WHY?
May 15, 2013 10:16 am Unlike Muddi900 I've been enjoying this read. I think it's been fun, and I liked the last two issues focus on Wolverine and Sue Storm together. I don't find that the story has been meandering at all. My one complaint would be that I don't understand why you create a mini-series but can't get a consistent art team for the whole works, I find the shifts in art annoying, and it is only worse when you collect these issues in the end. I don't think the "cheap retail scam" is defensible. This is a straight-forward team-up event book by some of the most popular creators in the industry. Last time I checked, that is right down the middle of the road of the type of product that Marvel and DC are supposed to be serving up. There isn't one gimmicky thing about the book. If you don't like it, that on the other hand is a legitimate criticism/opinion.
May 15, 2013 10:08 am I haven't liked a Byrne book in a bit, but my affection for his Alpha Flight, Fantastic Four, and NeXt Men runs keeps me going back to the well. He is such an incredibly talented artist. It's his writing that has lost touch with me a bit, but this looks intriguing, we'll see!
May 15, 2013 10:05 am Pretty cool they are ending this with an oversized addition. Lopresti has been magnificent on this title, and I like Marx as well. So sad the series is ending, I hope some day we'll see her resurrected back into a monthly title.
May 15, 2013 10:04 am No clue. My favorite Shadows have been Helfer, Baker, and Ennis. I do think some of the most recent books have been good, but the last couple left me cold. Hoping this will be an uptick. All the alternate covers annoy me.
May 15, 2013 10:02 am I like BG and have heard the raves about DnA on other cosmic books, so I'm giving this a shot.
