The action is good, but the set-up is absurd. The Frank Robbins art is wrong for the title, but this is his best issue so far. 3/10

  I guess it was just me that thought this one was just really bad.

  This was one of the insanest comics I've ever read that I actually liked. I actually chuckled in disbelief a few times. One of those moments was when Val thought, "something about this doesn't ring true". I thought it rang totally insane the second Cochren said "new kind of shock therapy"! I don't know if this was good or bad but it was crazy enough to keep it interesting. My general feel after reading this is that things are getting fairly out of control at Marvel about this time.

  That was just bad. And Frank Robbins' art is about the worst 1975 has to offer.

  Humph! This was just ridiculous. The only thing I liked was Falcons amnesia. The art is not great.

  Poor story. Awful art. Not a lot more to be said.

  It wasn't that bad. It wasn't good, but it wasn't that bad.

  So I can see that this is one of those tales that is going to get a hundred times more confusing before it starts making any sense. Well they've got a leg up on the first part, at least.

  Already not a fan of Robbins' pencils, but the full combination of pencil, ink and color in this issue is horrendous. Story was an entertaining step up from the Druid filler.
