  The new penciler is goddamn brilliant.

  I seen the pirates on the cover and groaned a little. Reading the last 2 books though was great. They were fantastic.

  Maybe adding ninjas would have made this better...

  Man-Thing just happened to fall from space to the tower that sunk underneath the sea 180 years ago, really? Super lame.

  More like super awesome! Seriously, though, I love the Man- Thing.

  You don't get to call things lame when your name includes both "heman" and "420".
I want to like this more, but the Satyr's actions are just SO stupid. He makes it very clear that he is buying her as a sex slave, and then is surprised when she reacts violently? Was there any reason whatsoever that he couldn't have explained what was going on while she was caged? And when she reacts very understandably, he curses her along with her ex-crew because... he's so concerned about her??
Pretty sure the new artist turned Man-Thing into a Muppet. He kind of looks like a Sesame Street monster.

  Yeah, the idea that Maura's only two options were to stick with Fate or stay with the satyr is pretty messed up. She has every right to be furious with both of them, and her decision at the end to stay with the satyr makes no sense.

  "I didn't want to enslave you" says the satyr, after literally buying her. The captain's little #NotAllMen speech at the end being the eye-rolling icing on top.

Dammit Gerber! You lured me in with goofy space pirates but all you had was this crap.

  Okay, while the story seemed to make more sense here, the mistreatment of women continues. Essentially, Maura was forced to either stay with the satyr or with Captain Fate; which was better? She had reason to hate men, even considering Capt. Matson's little speech, and this little choice given her at the end just seemed to justify her attitude. Ugly situation. @jwerth: both of her choices were senseless. The best thing would've been to let her go back with Capt. Matson and do her job and set Capt. Fate and his crew free. The satyr could've probably found a more willing mate (maybe?).

2 stars; it was almost a 1. I know Man-Thing is mostly observer to events around him but he was almost a complete non-factor here.

  The broad strokes were good enough, but the Satyr really could have been written better.
