Liked the previous issue more, but Liam Sharps art alone makes every penny spent worth it. The build-up was a bit too long, but the ending of the issue was nice, so I'll stay on board for whatever weirdstuff is coming next.

More than solid work by Higgins & Reis, visually and tonally quite a unique book in the current Marvel rooster. Really sorry this is only a mini. It could have become an interesting book in the vein of Nomad in the 90s.

This looked and read like everyone involved in the creation couldn't wait to get this homework done. I try to find SOMETHING nice to say about it, and it's that Meggan is featured in this book. Not the character from Excalibur but some alternative version of her, completely free of personality and/or inner conflict, but still: the name and costume were correct!

Dialogue is clunky. The main character is American but talks like a Brit. Story is ok and is supposed to grab fans of action comics but the last three pages have nothing to do with anything else and are there to give background on Wyrd but it's just thrown in and doesn't have a connection to anything. Writing was poor in my opinion. I will not be continuing with this.
