NOM NOM NOM NOM… What more is there to say, really? This was far and away my pick of the week, and although it was a light week I had expected The Underwater Welder to walk all over this, and that it didn’t isn’t a slight against Lemire’s work, which is amazing, but it just shows how much I love this comic right now.

This issue feels somewhat like the first issue that we are moving somewhere, the characters as Hickman rather than history has taught us are introduced and now some things are going to begin to happen. And it is honestly looking like it could become one of the greatest stories I will ever read.

Now more specifically what made this issue great was Oppenheimer, he is just the most wonderful character, and the line at the end, well I haven’t been this excited in a long time about a comic, even Saga isn’t pulling me in like this comic. But it clearly has an ensemble cast, and a rich one at that, Feynman has so much potential and Einstein now, no longer genius, but merely highly intelligent, but evil, well where is that going to go? How long before his mind is found wanting or his hands revealed to the others as bloodier than they will accept? Where is Fermi from? There is just so much here. I have no idea how far Hickman has this already planned out but if it’s not at least 60 issues i’d be very surprised.

Anyway, I love this.

  1. agree totally, this series has been one of the reasons why i have gotten back into comics after 10 years out. Creative and unapologetic in its approach to it’s themes. I can’t wait to see where the characters are taken, and if any turn out to contain any heroic attributes.
