BONUS REVIEW by John "Doc" Schaefer


Although James Robinson is a genius, I fear he may be acquiring some bad habits from current writers. (Although I chose to believe the conspiracy theory that states that Robinson is receiving marching orders from the higher ups at Marvel and silently cries himself to sleep hoping the fans will forgive him.) The currently storyline suffers from what 97% of the comic industry is suffering from. And that is not realizing the fundamental fact that the bigger you make the fire, the faster you burn through the wood! Robinson's wonderful flashback to the 70's with Deathlok (and wonderful Agents of Shield media tie in)has a sudden flare up when we are told that the villians have ALL the Deathloks! Great epic storytelling but what now? We all know that the good guys have to have some sort of win in the end. And unless you're going to rely on that chiche ending "?" by letting a few escape, you've pretty well painted yourself into a corner. (Unless of course you reboot the whole damn universe again and have Pam finding Bobby in the shower again!) Everything these days has to be so over the top and EPIC that storylines aren't stories any more. They are becoming preludes for the Next Big Thing. And then that becomes the prelude for the Next, Next Big Thing. This has got to stop or people's heads are going to start exploding. And although I love me some Agent Coulsen, he can't replace Cap (and I mean 1940's ever-lovin' Steve fricking Rodgers.

I give it 7 out of 10 Grahams
