Champions #6- The writings been on the wall for a few issues already, but the problem of this series is for all to see this issue. That problem being the lack of a overall plot. It seems writer Mark Waid know the problem as he introduced The Freelancers this series as a kind of counterpoint to The Champions. It didn’t quite work as it felt kind of tack-on. Hopefully, this issue is just a bump in the road.
Monsters Unleashed #4- The idea behind Marvel’s latest event is simple; superheroes fight giant monsters. If you want to be technical, there’s also giant monsters fighting against giant monsters, but you get the idea. If you don’t like the idea, then don’t read this series because writer Cullen Bunn and artist Salvador Larroca are running with this idea and having fun with it. With a good balance of action and humor (watch for the Luke Cage/Iron Fist/Fin Fang Foom scene), this issue is great!
Motor Girl #4- Give this Terry Moore; he is a man with a vision. He knows the story he want to tell and has enough confidence in his story-telling to just let the scenes flow. There are pages and pages in this issue where nothing happen and…it works! If you are looking for a unique story that’s like nothing else on the shelf, then you must pick up Motor Girl. It’s not just different; it’s great!
