I know that people haven’t been that jazzed about this series since Hardman has left, but I gotta say that I’ve been enjoying the heck out it.  While Hardman’s break ends soon (that’s right…he’s going to be back!), Patch Zircher steps in and does a bang up job.  Unlike the artist from the last couple issues, who drew in a more stylized way, Zircher brings a style to the table that is more reminiscent of Hardman, and it’s pretty flippin’ great.  In an interview on Wordballoon this past winter, Parker talked about bringing the book back to a Silver Age place with modern touches, and I’m happy to see him deliver that with this issue.  In his issue, we have a completely crazy villain and the return of M.O.D.O.K.  One of my favorite things in this issue is how Parker captures that villainous rant that takes place while the hero tries to find a way out of a perilous situation.  Despite his upgrade, M.O.D.O.K. is still a nut job maniac who can’t help but babble about how awesome he is while totally getting his butt kicked in the end.  It’s that sort of aesthetic that hopefully Parker was aiming for and its tons of fun.  I’m continuing to enjoy this series despite the art change.
