: So the team heads out to meet SHIELD thanks to
: everyone's favorite mercenary, Paladin.
: Turns out that they are being hired (and
: paid handsomely) to capture not Devil but
: Moon Boy! So it's off to the Savage Land to
: track down the protohuman.
: I thought this was another good issue but it
: unforunately had a few flaws. There was
: plenty of action to go around this time out,
: and once more we got to see Shang-Chi go all
: Master of Kung-Fu. Tarantula had a good
: showing too. I feel bad for Humbug, but I
: imagine that this will have something to do
: with what goes down with him during the
: "WWH" crossover comics. I really
: like how Colleen seems to care for him, like
: a big sister watching out for her kid
: brother sometimes. I think Col recognizes
: that Humbug's not a bad guy and just needs
: some guidance. I really like that. I also
: thought Shang-Chi shined character-wise in
: this comic book. The bit with him not
: wearing a shirt on the deck was great.
: There were some minor quibbles, such the
: jump from seeing Paladin, Shang, Cat, and
: Tarantula (whom I will now call
: "Chula") attacked by the bugs to
: Shang being at the bottom of the waterfall,
: which was a little confusing. Nothing major
: but I had to re-read a few pages to get the
: flow of things.
: But there was a major problem here, and I
: really hope it is rectified next issue:
: THERE WAS NO DEVIL DINOSAUR! You cannot
: promise Devil Dinosaur on the cover and not
: deliver! Don't get me wrong, I'm thrilled
: that Devil and Moon Boy are involved with
: this story -- moreso that it actually seems
: to make some sort of sense as to why SHIELD
: would want Moon. But dammit, I wanted some
: Devil Dinosaur and there wasn't any! The
: next issue had better be filled with Devil
: action or I'll get really hot! Don't toy
: with me Marvel!! RAAARHRGHHH!
: Ahem. Discounting that I am, how should I
: say this, a big Devil Dinosaur fan, this
: was a fine comic book which truly embodies a
: lot of what I want from a monthly comic
: purchase: it had action, pathos,
: characterization, a cliffhanger, made sense,
: and wasn't glum and depressed for its
: running length. This series just keeps on
: impressing me!
