Heroes for Hire #3

DnA write good comics, Hero. Brad Walker draws pretty nice comics as well, Hero.

This comic is no exception, Hero, I just have one teensy tiny problem with it... it's Heroes For Hire, Hero. Meh, Hero! All those characters on the recap page, Hero? Meh, Hero! I do however like Moon Knight and Iron Fist and they make up about half of this issue so, yay I guess, Hero. The Misty Knight as Oracle controlled by Puppet Master seems to be the big mystery running through this series, but that's not enough to hook me in, Hero. I am kind of curious about why Danny's wearing white, but since it probably has something to do with Shadowland I probably don't need to know, Hero.

I read this. And it's all pretty serviceable with some nice moments. I just didn't see a reason to come back. I didn't see a reason to think "man I need to read this". It just came, was enjoyable, and was over. A few minutes later I wouldn't be able to recount much. In other news it's a standard superhero comic book. With a good selection of characters.

I guess they only say "hero" 10 times but it seems like a lot more.

Heroes for Hire #3

The only thing I really found interesting here is how The Puppet Master was controlling Misty to somehow communicate telepathically to Moon Knight and Paladin's computer. Seriously, how does she do that from her sick-bed? That is some Professor X level shit right there.

I thought I'd get me some Satanna here, but no such luck. This seems like a decent supes book, but nothing about this issue really stands out as exceptional. Not bad, though not for me. The same goes for the art. I'll be interested to see if the book has any legs long-term.

Really hate Iron Fist's new look. Between White Iron Fist, Moon Knight, and the recent FF promos, Marvel Comics is taking "the good guys wear white" to a whole new level.

It happened when Iron Fist took the eye of agamotto for some reason. Obviously he decided it looked cool and left it alone.

Heroes For Hire #3, more than any other book I've read recently, has been FUN to read. I enjoy seeing an old school villain (Puppet Master) making moves in the Marvel Universe and watching several B- or C-list characters getting a chance to shine. As someone mentioned in this thread previously, one of my favorite factors in this book is that they are utilizing the Marvel Universe with a realistic touch.. Atlantean drug dealers, Savage Land sex trade.. and it makes me curious to see what else DnA will come up with.

Short and sweet this week:

Heroes for Hire #3

A comic which has Moon Knight fighting a velociraptor can never, ever be a bad thing. A comic that also features a guy like Paladin being the character I've really grown to enjoy can also never be a bad thing, especially when Iron Fist is involved. This is DnA at their best and I honestly will be checking it out more in the future.

Verdict: 8
