Free Comic Book Day title review
DC Comics: Divergence
For Superman, it is the preview on the consequences of Superman identity being exposed. While The only problem with this one is the art. John Romita Jr. art doesn't seem to fit with the action presented in the preview. While it is interesting to see Superman on the run, why is he not going to the fortress of solitude ? Did something happen ? So I was quite lost there.
Overall, DC do a very good job of teasing what's coming in June. It manages to reveal something to the reader, but still maintain some sense of mystery to look forward. I am excited on Justice League the most especially after seeing what happen to Batman in the preview. I give DC Divergence 4.5 out 5.0. It was a good tease, is just that I wasn't a fan of John Romita Jr. artwork.
Marvel's Secret Wars #0
The issue is then followed by the Avengers-Attack on Titan crossover. That one somehow has a very 90's feeling in term of this artwork and again wasn't particularly exciting. It was just what happen if the Titan attack New York and has to face The Avengers.
Unlike Divergence, Secret Wars #0 didn't give any revelation on what gonna happen in Secret Wars or in the future of Marvel Universe. It is just an issue that you can just take it or leave it. Overall, I give Secret Wars #0 2.0 out 5.0. Nothing particularly exciting, it was just a recap, and you don't have to read this one at all to jump on board for Secret Wars.
Marvel's All New, All Different Avengers
The preview is simply just the initiation of the three new members of the Avengers; Ms. Marvel, Miles Morales and Nova. However, what's interesting is that is written by Mark Waid. We know Hickman is taking a rest after the end of Secret Wars, is that mean that Mark Waid is taking over ?
The preview continues with a preview of Uncanny Inhuman.Nothing particularly interesting except that the Inhuman is getting more and more overlapping with the X-Men and it seems like Medusa is having a relationship with Johnny Storm making me wonder is she cheating or is she leaving BlackBolt ? Or is in the new universe they never together ?
Overall, I give this book a 4.0 out 5.0. This is a way interesting preview than Secret Wars #0. It gave us what to expect for the future of Marvel Universe and gave us enough questions to be answered in the future.
