That is how you end a war! (But they didnt.)
That was a very exciting story! (But it had some flaws.)
That chain of events should garner big fan reactions/analysis!
(But this post is just some page by page reactions...
Good cover concept. (Though the flaming head was not needed and the solid banner background choice detracts from the explosiveness.)
Prev Page: Publically thanking fans here for presumably making important Faiza suggestions/corrections was a VERY classy inclusion. The email address up front was VERY reader friendly gesture too. Kudos.
p1 Exciting title page. Nb: the magic glow globes follow CB?
p2 Things look effectively grim for the heroes on Earth. The pun was a funny kind of grim. And... what woman?
p3 Things look effectively grim for the heroes on Avalon. 1st hint of vampirism?
p4 Merlin's talking to Brian now. Sort of anticlimatic for a splash page.
p5 Appreciated flashback sequence included here, that tries, but only vaguely clears up CB chronology. Let's see: CB dies at Stonehenge, goes on a deathboat ride, summoned by Merlin in England cloaked in flags, theeen is apparently transported to Avalon to draw Excalibur only to return immediately to England for last issue's cliffhanger. Right?
p6 Hey, whattaya know one of the maaany skrulls are actually shapeshifting to choke Wisdom.
p7 Feel the Reed hate. Poor John.
p8 Hey! Maybe my volume1 Avengers 156 is more valuable with this character revelation... a heart of stone! Who knew??! Cool.
p9 Exciting fight page layout.
p10 Wanting Britain the center and not NYC is a refreshing change for an Earth invasion. Keep 'em talking Pete. Keep 'em talking!
p11 More focus on Faiza. Unfortunately it seems like just a 4th issue of damsel in distress demeanor and not very endearing.
p14-p15 That skrull's shadowed eyes tells the story perfectly for this sequence.
p16 Things are getting better.
p17 Four panels each with a different intriguing development for Wisdom. Lots of story there. Most intriguing: "He was mine."???!
p18 OH NO YOU DI'N'T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
p19 There IS Chaos Magic in the MU! Wanda didn't do it! Okay, this was a very cool debt/wish boon payoff. (From the Wisdom mini apparently??) Cannot see it affecting skrulls outside Britain and ending all the upcoming SI crossovers so we're going to have to assume a range effect, right? Takes a little away from the moment in hindsight.
p20-21 Wrap up and mission statement. Good ending for the TPB.
p22 Merlin's talking to HER now?!
