Am I giving the first issue way too much credit? Possibly. But the premise of Armstrong's immortality on the fritz with him and Archer trying to find ways of doing that has a lot of nuance that gives me time to think.

Conan's actually the least interesting thing about this issue; he's just doing his thing when Deathlok shows up.

I'm more interested in the number of B-C listers of this team; because unlike Duggan's series, this team's here to stay rather than revolve around. You can tell a lot of thought was put into this group and how dynamics can affect the run, no matter how short it is. Elektra fo more

It really does feel like half of these were made in a rush with how the dialogue sounds like memes half the time. I swear the editors are too overworked/underpaid to catch stuff like that.

Fracadactyl reviewed Phoenix Song: Echo #3 Dec 23, 2021
8.0

I always enjoy a callback to a character's creation. The whole reason Echo was made a Native American was because her creator learned hand signs from his Native relative. Sure the pace felt a bit rushed in this issue but I like how Echo communicates with some people. Plus now Forge isn't just a plot element, having the Adversary as a villain feels right to connect Echo to more characters.

After 1,5 years of boring and forced stories since joker war by Tynion, when it was announced that Williamson is the new Batman writer, I was super hyped, since every book he wrote in the past 3-4 years was great.

Even though I liked Tynion's Batman, I think Joshua Williamson will be better than Batman. It focuses more on Batman and Batman leaves Gotham, which is actually good because it doesnt have the same story of Gotham City being destroyed by villains. I am so far enjoying a lot of Batman content. Keep it up DC Comics and Joshua Williamson!

Alright a lot less cringey dialogue and a pretty good change in art in the middle of the issue to reflect the era Echo debuted. That gives the impression of Maya's beginnings being under attack. It feels like the editors are taking things a little more seriously in terms of Echo's presentation, what with her appearance in Disney+'s Hawkeye. It's interesting to see where this is going with how her more

I love spy thrillers, especially when superheroes are thrown into the mix. Everybody in this cast is looking to be a hero but is grappling on what that means. I mean the Winter Guard practically tears themselves apart over who could be working with or against them.

What explanation? Didn't you feel the comic was a bit safe, btw? I liked it, too, but I felt like the magic lacked for there to be something more to this. Still, I enjoyed seeing the Red Guardian and Vanguard is pretty interesting too.
