    It's a goofy read that probably didn't need to have continuity of four previous issues, but can still be fun and has some wild character designs. Read Full Review

    Everybody getting compounded into increasingly ridiculous combinations of characters was A++. The backup was boring.

    I didn't have much interest in the Warps concept, but this is a completely gonzo parody of it that wouldn't feel out of place in Mad Magazine. You probably need to be a long-time Marvel reader to really appreciate it, though... Learning from a glossary that a certain character has elements of someone from DP7(!) can't possibly be as satisfying as picking up on it right away. I do think this is about as far as the concept needs to be taken, although I would read a Doctor Hyperjustice series based just on the name.

    The main story by Al Ewing is ridiculously complicated, but also manages to make a lot of sense at the same time. It's interesting. While not as strong as the previous Arachknight issue, I did enjoy the crazy ride. The back-up, it seems, is like almost all the others. It doesn't really live up to the potential these characters have and doesn't necessarily tell a great story. I feel like, again, the Arachknight issue was better in this regard. Jim Zub's back-up was on par with the main story and just as fun. This issue's back-up brings the score down a bit. It just has trouble finding its voice and everything ends up a bit awkward and muddled as a result.

    I wish this series had started out with a warning that it was going to go all the way to "facial hair on top of masks" ridiculous by the end. Perhaps the warning was Ulysses Klorb, the villain with a giant ear for a head, and I should have paid more attention to it.
