It was a neat style. Definitely a story I want to check out, but this first issue definitely did not grab my attention as a 'wow' issue. Perhaps it's a slow build, but I'd need to check out issue #2 before making sense of this first one.

I was not a fan. I see that many people enjoyed it, but there are a few problems for me with this. Firstly, Ant-Man is just not my thing. I don't think the power is interesting and the entire history of how Scott Lang gets the suit just doesn't interest me either. Secondly, the off the cuff sense of humor doesn't really work. I found none of it funny, just a lot of self-deprecating rambling. Th more
