Defenders #5 (Violence is the universal language Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Fri Apr 20, 2012 4:01 pm

In this week’s interview with the Outhouse, (subtle plug) Matt Fraction described his take on this title as a book about all the characters you want to write solo but can’t (or words to that effect), and you could really see that in action here. Yes, all of the team are present, but much like #4 was very much a Doctor Strange story, this issue is all about Namor. The discovery of a weird chamber at the bottom of the ocean unleashes not only a dangerous new threat for the Sub-Mariner, but also some new wrinkles to his past. I’m not sure what the deal is with the discovery of the Nautilus is, did the characters from Jules Verne’s novel always exist in the Marvel Universe? Or did the weird cosmic metal tube thing bring them from the world of fiction to reality? And yes I know that the Marvel Universe is fictional, shut up. Mitch Breitweiser’s art was brilliant, I really love his art and it’s annoying that we don’t really get that much of it, his panel layouts here were excellent, and the colours from his wife were equally good. What is it about this book that attracts husband and wife teams? First the Dodsons and now the Breitweisers! How about the Immonens come and do an issue? It looks like next issue is an Iron Fist focussed issue, and that should be awesome, having Fraction write characters like Fat Cobra again is great news. Also, does anyone read ancient Atlantean runes? We need to translate the bottom-of-the-page captions!
