M.O.D.O.K.: Head Games (2020-) #3 by Jordan Blum
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This issue felt like a dip in quality to me, but maybe I’m just tired.
Despite the addition of Gwenpool it lacked a lot of the manic energy of the previous two issues. Or maybe because of the addition of Gwenpool? I mean, the book itself makes a joke about the writers ditching her character development and resetting her to the one-note cover gag she started out as. I mean, good joke, but…yeah…
This issue was very light on plot developments and heavy on action, leaving the one big reveal to the end…and we won’t really know what any of it means until the next issue.
Still, not a bad comic, and one that will work perfectly well in the trade paperback collection, I’m sure…but rather unsatisfying as a single issue.
