Matt Fraction wraps up both the story of Don Blake and Jeff The Emo Kid this issue, and I’m not sure how I feel about this story, it still seems rather disjointed. I did like that the solution to Don Blake’s problems lied with The Mares, but I still think there are unanswered questions about the nature of Don and Thor’s… relationship I’d guess you’d call it. It was also good how Fraction used a character type that’s normally used as a scapegoat for all that’s wrong in society as the example of what’s great in humanity. Jeff was a pretty interesting character, and that last page was a excellent HEAVY METAL image. It was also refreshing the way Fraction approached the Mares in the end, they weren’t really villains, dreams are they only way they can communicate, it’s quite tragic. And also you have the Enchantress getting cast out with her new Executioner. It seems like that pair are favourite of Fraction, I remember that Thor: God-Sized book by him that was basically an Executioner story, I hope they’ll back. So yeah, a lot going on and I don’t feel like it had much space. Perhaps it was all wrapped up too quickly to make room for the crossover with Journey Into Mystery. Speaking of that crossover, I don’t read JiM, I hope I don’t miss out on anything by avoiding the ‘Tumblr feels’ that book generates in it’s fans. I hate feels, just say feelings! And communicate with words! Not gifs! Ahem.
