--Previous Message-- : Joe Q. was around for Lobdell's Flight : version. J. Torres had been greenlit to do : AF but had the rug pulled out from under him : in favour of Lobdell. :
Was Joe Q EIC at that time?
Admittedly that was by far the worst period in Flight history, although it was thankfully short lived.
I re-read Omega Flight yesterday and its obvious just how compressed and rushed the story is. Theres very little characterisation and to be honest almost no time is allowed to explore USAgent, Spiderwoman or Pointer - its mainly shaman and Sasquach.
I re-read the USAgent one shot that leads up to it aswell and thats still an awsome story that had me thinking about what could have been if Oeming had been able to give us the story he intended to.
Oeming writes a cool Agent - very in character with his cnuck bashing comments - and I liked the way that Stark not only told the truth but also stroked Agents ego the way he needed to by calling him 'the best at what he does'. Its a damn shame that we never got to see the Purple Man storyline and a shame that we never got to see more of Oeming writing more of my favourite cantankerous ass USAgent!
In this respect Ive probably enjoyed reading Weapon Omega more that Omega Flight itself because theyve really been able to explore the Pointer/USAgent teacher/pupil dynamic, and I'm looking forward to reading the whole story in one sitting instead of a mere 8 pages per month for 12 months.
