Ok, so I just got issue# 2 last night and I know I’m late to the party, but here are a few of my thoughts:
It’s getting better I think. I feel like the characterization is getting more comfortable and the plot certainly is getting more interesting. I liked the Namor jokes, and I liked Steve being miffed he wasn’t consulted about dividing up the god controlling device and then wiping memories. The apologies were adorable.
I’d still like more interactions. And I’d like some reaction from Jim about Bucky lying about being dead to him, but that may come later.
Another huge plus for me was there is a letters page. YAY! I’m a total geek in that one of my favorite parts of comics was the letter pages, and I’m excited to see them coming back into style after being gone so long.
Whereas last issue, my biggest issue was the writing, this issue, my biggest issue is the art.
Jim often IMHO looked younger than Bucky. Now, given wibbely wobbely frozen times and Jim being an unaging Android, maybe he does now look younger than Bucky, but I mean like Jim looked maybe 18 or younger in some panels. Which was off putting.
And Bucky often just looked wonky. I’m not feeling this artists take on Bucky yet.
Anyway, quibbles aside, issue three can’t get here fast enough!
