This issue had some pacing issues, but the art and story are still all there. I love the Emi Lenox webcomic opening, and the colors on this book really pop, but nothing really important happened here, at least that I could tell. So hopefully this book rebounds next issue, because I want there to be more to this series than what we got in this issue. There are still so many questions left unanswered, and so many people still left unaccounted for, so these issues need to be resolved ALONGSIDE all the talk. Maybe I just held off on this book until too late in the day, and it just got too far down the pile that by the time I got to it I was no longer in the mood for slower talky-talky books. I still love the look of this book, and I am really, really interested in seeing how these people deal with their mutation/transformation AND how they handle Susan who turned into a sentient and possibly psychic/telepathic amorphous blob of tarry black gas cloud or whatever. This book has been immensely fun so far, so trading on all those past successes keeps this book out of the basement for this issue, but I will be expecting MUCH more in issue nine.
