Wasn't flawless but still lots better than lots on the market and worth the cover price!
Page by page reactions:
-lots of times the cover art style(penciller) is different than inside, so as far as that goes, this was a neat clean-cartoony interpretation of the Daughters of Dragon. The buck-toothed ittybitty hivelings looked a little too cute to compare to the more scratchy-style H4H drama inside
-refreshingly entertaining Previously Page as usual with this title
-inside the hivelings were more appropriately creepy but a little to eloquent for my expectations and their stoneship was a little bland for so many full panel shots(4-5 total?) this issue
-Humbug should publish a diet book Respecting Protien, he'll sell... a couple copies
-Colleen is coming across as really motherly with Moon Boy, including covering his eyes here (why did she take him on this mission again??)
-Shang's gonna need a psychiatrist regretting every action he's taken for several issues now, including here
-what was that light flash for? Going to warp? Caption might've fit. Whatever.
-so many far shots give detailed perspective this issue but a few more close shots might've added more emotion
-Miek. Perfect poster alien for onomonpeia (sp?).
-Humbug's understanding the bugs came across as unclear if it included the odd shaped panel visions of Hulk's Warbound
-Hiroim is fast and strong and imposing in WWH, including here. But what the heck is the CRACK! sound effect from; even though it's a neat effect? And Colleen looks a little green (and yellow from the slime) trying to chop at Hiroim's foot?!
-Moon Boy speaks up but something about the background hue made his 'moment' seem off or at least one panel premature
-Brood! Knew they were coming but the advance voice added a fear factor
-okay those visually represented bruises are gonna hurt in the morning
-impressive showing for Shang; as Hiroim put Iron Fist down with one punch more or less in WWH3
-impressive showing for Moon Boy; hard to believe it takes 6 zappers
-impressive showing of Stark's hardware... not; Misty is pawned too AND not sure if it was an obvious punch or weapon repulsion
-the final sequence with the Brood Queen is so good because Humbug is developing into an intriguing character and he could convincely go either way; great cliffhanger splash to end it!
...no wait, there's the backup still! More for your buck if you want a breather from all the WWH stuff. Plus an appropriate change of artist. A perfectly preferrable Previously Page crammed into 2 little narration squares. Scorpion/Paladin throwing contest. Evil SHIELD implications. Carr called out! A fanboy arsenal. Character challenging cliffhanger!
Looking forward to the next issue! The H4H team will surely bust out... of their predicament!
