  1. Standalone Issue! Does this mean I’m gonna have to wait to see the aftermath of all the crazy madness from last issue? Still totally worth buying in my opinion

      I’m guessing this is kind of going to be a #0 issue with us finding out how Arcade became such of a formidable enemy all of a sudden. Looking forward to it. I just wish it was being drawn by Kev Walker.

    • I will miss Kev Walker for sure, but also very interested what Alessandro Vitti (if that`s how it`s spelled) can bring to the table.

    • Vitti did a nice fill-in a few issues ago (#4 and/or #5 I think?). Different than Walker, but still good.

    • Oh wow I remember the issue, didn’t realize he was the artist, that’s really awesome atleast now we have an idea of what we’re going to be getting

  2. I’ve been wondering about Arcade. Bring it on!

  3. I have been very curious about Arcade’s motivation for this. This stand-alone will be very helpful.

  4. Not a bad issue, but I missed being with the kids on the island. That stuff had gotten so compelling that I’m not sure I needed to understand Arcade’s motivations and the mechanics of this Murderworld.

    • I agree, this issue easily could’ve been condensed into flashback interstitials of a standard issue (the same way Hopeless has been backgrounding each of his other POV characters), but this way, Marvel squeezes another $2.99 out of us. :-/

      Also – I was still a bit unclear at the end of #7, as far as the true source of Arcade’s new powers as well as the truth about Ms. Coriander. (Was she all in his head?)

  5. wow! the letter in the back of the book was uber harsh!!!!

  6. Nice little issue, with a nice peak behind the curtain. I guess this answers the “virtual reality or real” question.
