Is anyone reading this ex-Champion's series?
Maybe you can share a more enlightened reaction than these...
Recap with scans:
Never bought #1 or #2.
The art preview had me hold off on # 1&2. Wasn't sure if it seemed more like a super stylistic approach by a expert artist or a rushed/messy 'look' to go for a lanky 'feel'. Andrew is a boy, right? Being positive, see merit in the descript from a link above (though unlikely to buy a monthly series with it):
..the hyper-stylized quality lends an otherworldly and slightly creepy air to the comic, which is perfect for the story being told. He's also the first artist I've ever seen who has drawn Warren's wings as if they could actually hold up..
Also very conerned about the continuity conflicts suggested by this thread here:
But decided to try #3 being mod and all. And... it wasnt that bad. The big rescue
of the story was a simple yet effective issue plot. That was some (early) display of strength propelling thru the ice like that, eh? Wondering what previously was the first known heroics done by Warren?
The scope of the storyline seems small enough that it might fit in the 616. At first, thought the offended classmate guy was going to the the Flash Thompson type antagonist (ala Animal House) but soon learned that not one but TWO separate and truly EVIL villains are involved. The sicko priest and the mutant-killer (havent googled his ID yet) who is worse than any Purifier, if not Risman himself. [Ghost Rider wouldve liked 5 minutes with either of 'em!]
Still torn about getting anymore at cover price though. Marvel is obviously forcing the religious backstory that may work out as well as Matt Murdock's mother ending up to be... well, a Mother. Since already have satifying preconceptions of Angel's early life - though did not think his father to be a curser in high society. The more interesting element is what will happen to Mary Margaret - who kinds looks like, in a copyish sort of way, Molly Walker on the Heroes TV show.
In cas e you want to go back to #2 stuff:
