Nick reviewed Tales of the Human Target #1 Sep 25, 2022
7.5

This is a good issue. I think the big twist is kinda predictable, but that doesn't stop it from being a pretty solid little character study for each of the narrators.

This is an interesting one. I think I want to like it a lot more than I do. Ultimately, this just feels like so much buildup for a minimal payoff. It seems like the issue could've gotten its point across in like half the pages and still been just as effective.

"THE HUNT FOR LOVE"
Joan wakes into another nightmare of love. 1920. She's the maid and Roger's the heir to the manor, and though it is forbidden, they are inevitably drawn together. But soon clichés begin to crumble and blood begins to spill as Joan fights back.

The art could've been better for such a visually focused issue, but other than that this was good. I enjoyed Spider-Man's quips and I appreciated how refreshingly light and breezy the whole thing felt.
