Prince of Power #1
I like Amadeus Cho a lot. I would even go as far as to say that the comic where he debuted, Amazing Fantasy #15
, was one of, if not the, best comics published by Marvel in the 2000s. As much as I like Cho however, you can have too much of a good thing and this comic suffers from it in spades. Cho is a great supporting character. As the lead though his net speak shtick quickly becomes tedious and the comic is a chore to read as a result. Maybe if I had been reading Incredible Hercules this would have been more entertaining, but after reading this I'm highly skeptical that Incredible Hercules was entertaining in the first place.
And just as a nitpick, as someone who has lived in Butte, Montana, albeit it's been about 15 years, there is certainly no multi-story shopping mall with a Ferris Wheel in it. That was out of place and annoying. If you want to have a realistic fight set in Butte, set it in a bar for fucks sake.
Dull art for a dull book. There wasn't anything wrong with it, well... just as long as you don't do the math on how much time the mace spent in the air after Cho threw it in the imaginary Butte shopping mecca scene - that's some serious Matrix shit right there, it just didn't do anything for me. I would say it was art befitting the C-List mini it was placed in, but that'd be a pretty asshole thing to say so I'll just erase what I just typed. Nah, I'll leave it in.
