The amount of cringey shit Morrison spouts here really makes this a chore. He's not nearly as clever as he thinks he is. Also, we're basically at the half of this book that sets up an ambitious task, changing the world and all that, and we're still absolutely nowhere. I have serious doubts Morrison will deliver something of substance in the next two issues, if the first two were any indication. An more

Cool. I enjoyed Morrison, too, in the past but nowadays he's just not putting his best work in and he insists on cringey dialogue that I roll my eyes at waaay too much.

A edição é boa, o sacrifício é lindo e emocionante. Mas se era pro Namor sair dessa como um escroto, era melhor ele nem estar nessa mini. No fim das contas ele é o maior "mulher na geladeira" da Marvel, sempre que quer causar algum drama no casamento da Sue e Reed o use, e depois faça ele dizer ou fazer qualquer coisa idiota.

I guess Search For Galactus references were off the table. Pity really, it would've fit well into the growing narrative. But I guess commentary about the 80s is better than nothing. Would including HERBIE be too big of a spoiler in this issue? It does fit well into the relationships Reed has with others and the recognition of his obsessions. I felt really bad Thing was being left out for the most more

Gotta like the art, action, and what pieces of the narrative will come back to bite everyone. I just wonder if everything Doom did in this arc really was just for appearances like he said. Like maybe he put things together... but I'm having trouble believing that myself.
