"Not a lover."
"Not a parent."
"Not a friend."
I'll be damned. Not bad.
-The issue starts off strong, with the Midnighter in his serious mode. Jenny Quantum has little need for parents, having done that decade-jump in some mini-run a while back.
-Nice bit of him wandering the carrier and contemplating his role in life - he is -what he does, a philosophy right out of a Michael Mann movie - he stops by a globe and spins it, opening a carrier door to Afghanistan.
-The action was solid, reminiscent of War in the Sun - Midnighter kicking a sabot into another tank was especially cool.
-Midnighter's taken out in a way similar to Stormwatch: Team Achilles, but not in a way which is glib or smug. Midnighter isn't rolling around on the ground, asking what the fuck is going on; he's still a tough mofo whose powers are out of whack.
-Thought for a second Kev was making an appearance in this issue.
We'll see how it goes, but it's a solid start and more promising than The Boys. I don't doubt The Boys will sell better, but this looks like the better read.
