The Mighty #2 Review

Recently reviewed by me at CBR: The Mighty #2, about which I write the following sentences: "But this isn't a miniseries. It's an ongoing, or at least it's scheduled to be one. And a non-Vertigo, outside-of-the-DCU-proper superhero comic seems to have little chance of long-term survival in this marketplace. Yet this one certainly deserves a chance. I say, let's support it while it lasts, and maybe enough of us will do that so the series will get a chance to develop fully. So that the seeds planted in the first couple of issues will grow into something majestic"

Read the entire review HERE.

It's an ongoing, but Tomasi and Champagne are treating the first 12 issues as a "season", much like Sleeper. So if it doesn't last, at least the story will get a chance at resolution.

You know, I think they should have taken it to somewhere other than DC. Sure, you're in the front of the catalog, but...

I think they probably wanted to get paid for their work, though. Getting paid for work is always nice. (But if it lasts past issue #12 I will be shocked! I hope it does, but still...)

Then again, Simon Dark made it well past 12 issues. Okay,not well past. But past.

Simon Dark is cancelled? I only read one issue, but I was planning on getting back to it. Maybe now Hampton can go give the Bat-books some decent art.

Simon Dark #18 -- scheduled for tomorrow -- is the last issue.
