Man, the old style of writing for comics can get clunky. So, so clunky. There's more nuance nowadays: a little more trust of the audience, so not everything has to be said quite as plainly as it is.
Still, I want to see what happens to that lady who went through Terrigenesis, but there was too much going on: two big threats, which meant all action and no real character development which was one of the reasons this was rated so low.
I did like the art, but I also didn't think it was the best art I'd seen in a comic. I prefer the recent comics, though, with more of an emphasis on characters.
what a battle. no, I don't mean any of the fights inside this graphic novel...I mean the battle that erupted when I tried to decide whether to put Marv Wolfman on hold for one more book, and read Fredric Brown instead. all I can say is--Volume 5 of this Teen Titans run features the inclusion of Terra into the order of things (of course, she has her own secret agenda; actually, it's more like a secret someone else's secret agenda!), and, to top that, here's where Adrian Chase finally loses everything he ever cared about, and becomes the Vigilante. Vigilante was actually my first extended foray into the DC Universe, so this is a cool return to all of that. I'm reading comics I read many years ago, but also pieces of Wolfman's grand story arc that I only vaguely knew must have happened to get things to where I joined the party. maybe only this volume of amazing comics could hold the mighty Fredric Brown at bay...for a day or two at best...
