We’re back to the “flagship”… which, is unfortunately a book seemingly stuck between two eras. Not quite Reign of… but also not yet full-blown Destiny of.
It’s widescreen mutant action… in that Morrison JLA style, which is to say… not my favorite approach. Snark and quips take the place of characterization… and, oh yeah — M.O.D.O.K. shouts “For Science!” – that’s a punchline, y’all. Laugh!
In the mailbag we discuss the shifting in what it means to be a Mutant in the post-Hickman landscape — plus, a little bit more on the “seams showing” in XLADOW.
Then, I get a bit self-indulgent — talking about the future of this (and other) shows on the channel… which, heck – if you made it that far, don’t feel bad about clicking “stop”.
