2021: Lost Children #1

Jul 11, 2018

The art is the best part. It's expressive and it's clean. I love the design work too except for the kids, who look too darn creepy for me. All in all, it's a book that doesn't make much in the way of choices story wise. But the art will make you stick with it. It may even make you skip reading the words, especially if bored.

It has to be said that I'm really hoping King didn't weave an incredible story these last 72 issues just to get us to a watered down version of Knightfall. There are a lot of nods to it and quite honestly, that's when the series is at its weakest. King can tell an original story well. I hope he continues to do that rather than redo an already used up story. Sure, it was great at the time. But his run has turned into its own thing and I hope it stays there.

The issue does feel a little incomplete. But that's okay as there's still another chapter of this story. King and artist Mikel Janin work so well together. The ending is a cliffhanger but it seems to be a newer direction for the series. I'm liking it. It's a great issue and it's full of even more promise. Well done.

The only thing that doesn't really work for me is Powerhouse's costume design, which looks like a Green Lantern gone to hell. It's a small complaint but I think more time could have been used to develop it. That minor complaint aside, this is a good issue in a solid book.

The issue does have a bit of a jolting ending but I liked it enough. It feels like it was rushed but hey, everything else works. And the art by Travis Moore makes everything better. He gives us some great visuals here. All in all it's a decent book and I hope they keep up the energy and creativity on this title.

This book has been schizophrenic. There is no two ways about it. If they can settle on a creative team and make the book consistent, it'll return to where we were just a few months ago. But this isn't bad at all. I very much enjoyed it.

The characters are too. When you put that together with a strong story, you get one of the best books of the year. The creators make everything in this book the best it can be.

It's not terrible. There's some good writing and some excellent art. I just feel like this book can do something else than pick up the scraps Bendis sends over. It needs its own identity and once it has that, it'll be a much stronger book overall.
