As ridiculous as the rest of this, funny, and it's got Rocket again to boot.
Everything ties up nicely, and the best I can say is that this knew it was completely silly as a concept and went, what the hell, we'll roll with it. It didn't try to be too serious, and that would have just made this seem weird in a 'oh, no, they don't know that it isn't' way.
Instead, it was just hilariously weird.
I'm just not a huge fan of these events, mostly because they seem to be...shallow. Like I don't see what larger purpose this will serve in the Marvel universe, nor what the ones before this served, and it makes me cynical.
It's fun seeing Rocket as a Venom, and Robbie Reyes as a Ghost Rider, and there's a twist I really enjoyed in the middle of this, thus the three-star rating.
It was fun and slick.
But it certainly wasn't great, something I know this author can do well. It didn't make me feel for the characters, even at points where I normally would have. Most of the emotional aspects felt like it was trying to manipulate me, or just fell flat, thus the lack of four or five stars.
Still, I probably inflated this rating. It's the first time I've been able to read and review in a while - and man, I missed both of those things!
Aliens in Halloween bingo.
The Guardians of the Galaxy and the Inhumans get involved as the fight over the twins spills over to everyone.
Funny, charming, just gorgeous art - pencils, inks, colors, everything - this is a perfect mini-series. I need to remember I own this on Comixology whenever I need to cheer myself up. Love, love, love!
