It concerns me that Gail spends so much energy in building up new characters that have such anti-climactic character arcs.
I am all for new characters but the Crow, characters I was really enthused about, are fairly shallow; they're just little boys who had a few lines and then got spanked and shipped off off-panel. I don't know that I really give a damn about them at this point because, even after they've been the big bad for an arc, there's been nothing to really give a damn about. Too much whimper, not enough bang.
This is a repeat of the problem with Achilles, the Ichor and Gail's rendition of Cheetah, Doctor Poison and Dr. Psycho (though at least with Achilles this looks like it shall be remedied). It's feeling like the Circle and Genocide were the only villains invested in during Gail's run and Genocide (which was the most horrifically designed character I've seen in a while) was ultimately folded into the Circle.
This is not good when you've got an unstable character mythos and danglers ahoy from the last three or so runs to deal with. Why are we spending time on new characters who ultimately have little impact when time could be spent consolidating the previous stuff?
