Another issue where I'm left wondering what has happened to Mike Grell's ability to deliver an entertaining read, as frankly this latest arc involving Ty Stone & his illusion machine has been a boring retread of the original story that Frank Tieri offered up, and given I wasn't impressed by the material the first time round, this arc wasn't exactly a welcome sight. The story is flat, the threat is unable to convey even the slightest sense of danger, and a lackluster conclusion that has the villain defeated when the power is shut off left me cold. I'm beginning to get the sense that Mike Grell still hasn't found his voice on this title, and I beginning to suspect he never will. I also find it difficult to accept the way that Mike Grell continues to gloss over Rumiko's actions and with this issue dealing directly with the man she used to lash out at Tony, I found it odd that the story didn't use the opportunity it had to really look at why she did it.
