It’s always the way isn’t it? Whenever a series is announced as being cancelled or having a creative team change, the subsequent issue is the best so far, making your annoyance at the cancellation/new writer even stronger, Cornell is just getting into his stride and now he’s leaving. I think the reason I liked this issue more than the previous ones is because it was a bit more streamlined, there was only one real conflict, and I could focus on Midnighter and Apollo taking down the weird blob thing. The scene where Midnighter gets Projectionist to aim a Solar Laser at Apollo to recharge him was great, iconic stuff. I also liked that the links between this book and Demon Knights surfaced again, literally, with the city of Alba Umbra coming up to the surface of the Earth. Alba Sarum has been a big feature of Demon Knights, so I’m betting this other city is related to it in some way. I wonder when Adam will show up in Demon Knights? Speaking of Adam, I’m glad next issue is going to focus on him and his failings, he’s annoyed me so far, so I’d like some explanation.
