This time I'll be briefer than usual, I only have a couple of issues to review, and I've already said what I'm going to discuss over and over in my previous reviews, so I won't take too much of your time.
Immortal Hulk #21:
Ten issues or so ago I predicted the absurdly inflactionated "God is dead and we killed Him" quote by Nietzsche, today we got Jung and the Book of Genesis, we're getting even closer than I expected, so I want to bet on it right now:
If I read the quote in the book before issue #30 I'm going to write a letter to Ewing in the fan mail, I'll post a copy of the letter here.
In this issue Ghost R...Hulk didn't even appear and the backstory of this General Fortean is even lamer than I expected. Again, for the 21st time, fantastic job by Joe Bennett, though there wasn't much work to do this time as action and monstrosities were turned to the minimum.
Spider-Man Life Story #5:
Morlun gets the cake of 2nd most disrespected character of this mini, after MJ obviously. Even in this fifth book, Peter and MJ managed to share the outstanding amount of 1 panel, ONE, where MJ tells Peter that Morlun killed Ben Reilly.
Peter isn't that far behind in our special ranking either as he gives priority to fighting the Civil War alongside Cap instead of protecting his family from Morlun. Also, his secret identity was revealed by an autopsy on Ben's body and Peter's son is nearly dead after volunteering as bait for Morlun, so we'll probably have to endure OMD here too.
Zdarsky went from "Best Spider-Man book in a decade" to "When does this thing end again?" in a record amount of issues. He clearly can't write Peter and MJ, he doesn't understand Peter's priorities and he can't move the character forward, it's like Peter is stuck in a loop where he grows up a bit and then he's pulled back because Zdarsky doesn't know where to go next.
On a side note, I read the previews of House of X and Powers of X (which is apparently Powers of Ten actually), not much to discuss as they wanted to avoid spoilers in anyway, but Krakoa will play the role of some sort of both a new Cerebro and a new Genosha/Safe haven for mutants. I honestly hope that despite the setting Deadly Genesis isn't brought up, it's one of the X-Men stories that I hate the most.
