In some ways, I think a lighthearted series between Sam and Rich could be in order to heal the fan-base. perhaps an appetizer or primer before we get a solid "serious" series.
At the least, this new book seems more thought out than the last volume.
"Death and resurrection" is a long term theme. I wonder what this means here? Of course my gut paranoid reaction is that Rich (again) or even Sam will die at the end. Perhaps instead, this will extend into some broad story-lines with another rebirth for the Corps...Xandar...or Rich's brother Robbie. (or even jesse)
I wrote this about the art:
This looks decent…the art works well enough. I don’t have many problems with the lack of a “Prime” star. Perhaps some aspect of the story will explain that.
Again, I have more of an issue with a comedy series based off “Nextwave”. Not too sure about that…but I’ve never read Nextwave either.
For one, there is a glut of comedy or light hearted stuff out there, especially within cosmic. Its hard to separate with this material, and several books have failed. I still think a lot of the comedy in the cosmic is trying too hard to ride the coattails of the GOTG film, and stems from a lack of confidence in serious cosmic science fiction of the DnA, Giffen, or even Starlin/ Kirby breed. The need to “dumb down” runs strong with Axel Alonso’s Marvel.
Two, the creative team is interesting, but not going to be a draw.
Three, I have doubts about “long term viability” as a comedy series that harkens back to Nextwave.
Personally, I think the comedy rout was an abject disaster for both The New Warriors and Star-Lord, though it has worked for others.
Lastly, NYCC seems to have sent a message to me that Marvel cosmic is still very far from a united vision. Still disjointed and deprioritized.
Still, good to see Rich Back. I think the top image pushes away some of the fears of Rich as a “ghost” or as a bumbling sidekick to Sam.
