Issue Review
 
RikerDonegal
   December 8, 2016
There's a heck of a lot of storytelling in this.
Particularly in the first third where some Defenders are in another dimension and nothing much happens. Instead, the backstory of the land is told in an unusual way. Information is dense. But it holds the interest.
The middle third is action-heavy. And it's exactly what the reader needed, after all the text. We are back on Earth, and other Defenders are battling some villains.
The final third brings some twists. Enjoyable.

9/10

  -Mandrill appearance is an automatic one star deduction.

  The Dr. Strange storyline is interesting and worth the read, but the one with the Valkyrie group back on Earth is just so tedious and bad.

  @Canuck, I'm the opposite. I find the Tunnelworld excruciatingly boring and the Val part is bringing it up a notch even with the Mandrill as a villain.

  I can't decide which storyline I dislike more.

  I was wrong. Magneto would have been better, though.

  The Tunnel world section was unreadable. The other part wasn't good, but better than that nonsense.
