This issue kind of hurt my head with all the time-skips, but I really enjoyed the ride. Ellis is very good at taking silly superhero clichés like using time-travel to save the day and exposing them to his almost-reality. So we see how long it would take for Black Widow to save the day, she was time-travelling for almost 3 weeks to prepare for one moment. Really interesting. Maleev’s art was great as usual, and I’m not really sure what the point was of the Modesty Blaise homage in the middle there, but it was fun. There’s only one more issue of Ellis’ run, let’s hope it’s as good as the others have been. I’d love to see Ellis come in and take this approach with some other books, it’s refreshing for all involved.
