Adam Warren tries to maintain a fairly humorous tone throughout the book, and as a result the threat of the ever multiplying Things isn't taken as seriously as I would've like to have seen. What's more when the book does take a moment to remind the reader that the threat is a serious one, it comes across as a bit contrived, as the future seeing device comes across as more as a mean for Adam Warren to deliver dire predictions that we know will never become a reality, than an actual piece of technology. Still there's some fun ideas in this issue, from the conference call that has Reed bringing together multiple versions of himself from other dimensions, to Ben's version of a snow ball fight using compacted cars. The lighthearted tone also allows for some rather cute moments, like the opening attempts by Johnny & Sue to contact some help, or the Thing duplicates rather limited dialogue skills.

Worst of all, the stupid plot from the last issue hasn't been revealed to be a derivative of too much alcohol. Well, Mr. Warren has been drinking, but The Thing apparently hasn't had a sip. Read Full Review
