Issue Review
   March 11, 2016
Enjoyable for many reasons. It opens with some solid character development. MM returns to his friends, and we can see that one former foe has grown considerably and modified his views on MM. It's been nicely developed over a few issues. Next we get something light - a baseball game - that actually works, it serves to show another fascinating aspect of the lead character. And finally, a villain shows up. And there's some action. 8/10

  -The dialogue in this issue made me want to bang my head with a hammer, and the baseball panels were ridiculous page filler.
-Please Jesus, let this be the last Kirby in The Order!

  The last real King in the Order. But really, it's been a while since Kirby has been an exciting prospect. It is too bad there was no one near him who could tell him he needed help with the words. He is like the George Lucas of Silver Age comics.

  Continued in the Incredible Hulk... Hulk's mag tends to conclude cancelled title stories.
