Issue Review
   August 7, 2017

Firstly, it's bad because it's all so predictable. As soon as the villain appears, in disguise, the reader knows where this is going.

Secondly, it's a story that makes the lead character look like an idiot. I'm all for stories that show Marvel heroes making mistakes and needing help but at one point in this tale Jessica is told that her new boyfriend is lying about where he works and she completely ignores this vital info. Instead, she gets annoyed that her friend is prying.

Thirdly, the supposed love story is ridiculous. It blossomed when? During the picnic?

  -Once again, the story falls flat at the end. Fleisher is turning an average mag into a sh*tty one.

  And when SW uses her poison, she's helpless for an hour? Where have all her fighting skills gone?

  I really miss Gru's writing at this point.

  This series sent from good to bad as a whole, and this issue was the worst. First, the 1 hour thing is arbitrary and stupid. Second, the whole thing was as predictable as it gets. Thirdly, she doesn't want to round up criminals suddenly because of a dude she just met, that turned out to be a master criminal? 1 star, and that's really too good for it.

  Moral of the story: The friend zone is a bitch.

  Wha..? the hell was that? Felt like SW should have said "End scene" in the final box. I know it's an extended story (because of this order) but it felt like less than half a book
