So, I’m definitely into this now, it’s taken me a while but…yeah…this was pretty damn good.
I like the fact that Cates is genuinely working all of the Marvel Universe into this, rather than the usual thing of forgetting that some incredibly powerful heroes exist who could probably lend a hand.
Instead we have jean Grey turn up and use her immense telepathic abilities to help break Knull’s hold on Dylan, and, in turn, bring Doctor Strange, Thor and other back into the fight.
Perhaps ore significantly is the Silver Surfer’s involvement…because why wouldn’t the Surfer be involved? He breaks through the barrier to Earth allowing…something else to make it through.
And what this is would be a big old spoiler. But suffice it to say that Cates appears to be making one of the more obscure corners of the Marvel Universe relevant again…or maybe, really, relevant for the first time.
The art is superb too, and it all makes for a very fun read.
