Almost all of the Citadel dialogue is untranslated from an alien language, although easy enough to understand through the art. Princess Leia 4 — I still feel like this is the least of the Star Wars books so far, but it is enjoyable nonetheless. Leia continues to look for pockets of Alderaanians, and ferrets out the misguided spy in her midst. Secret Wars 3 — Jonathan Hickman explains a lot more stuff with this issue, and it makes this event work a lot better for me. We get the history of Battleworld strange choice of name for God Doom to make , and an explanation of how there can be duplicates of familiar characters knocking about.
Anyway, this title is notable because it is written by regular series artist Brian Hurtt, and because it focuses more on the First Nations characters in the series. The containment of a god has left the door to death wide open, and all manner of creatures are spilling out. A coalition of four tribes has sent some champions to stop it, while Screaming Crow, a character in the main series, is working with Kalfu, the keeper of the Crossroads, to do the same.
I like the art, by AC Zamudio, and Hurtt has got the tone of the book down just right. The book is light in tone, while still addressing some serious issues, and, at the end of the day, making this one of the best-looking Spider-Woman comics of all time. He has a real good handle on these characters and the way the original actors portrayed them. The Woods 13 — James Tynion IV moves the story forward a year from where the last issue left off, and in that time, the kids who have found their school transported to an alien world have come a long way.
Some of their number are doing better than others though. Karen is still torn up over the choice she had to make last issue, and has moved towards a life of solitude, while other characters are showing stress in a variety of ways. This is a remarkable series that continues to make me very happy that I took a chance on its first issue. Zero 17 — Ever since this series became about William S. This used to be a series about a black ops agent.
