2.0

When the twist was revealed last issue, I had hopes that this series might redeem itself, but this final issue nailed that coffin shut. Flat characterization -- none of these characters are individuals. Sloppy plotting -- how could a Vox be using Crystal or Lockjaw's powers *before* capturing them? And a sharp turn back into the wholesale slaughter the title promised (but looked like it might b more

As the full picture of what's going on slowly comes into focus, it seems that this is not the massacre it appeared, so points for that. However, it's still a grim fake massacre that's otherwise light on story and character. The writer's decision to ignore Ewing's recent excellent Inhumans backstory still gripes, especially when weird stuff gets shoveled in from left field like the Beta Ray/Lockj more

I own every issue of Stray Bullets. I have a general idea of what's happening in this issue. Lapham seems to alternate between straight up noir/crime arcs (love them!) and issues or full arcs that are flashbacks/hallucinations/dreams/who knows. This issue is the latter. I appreciate that this book is free from editorial meddling, but this is way off the rails. It's either brilliant, way before its more
