Baby Jack-Jack, everyone’s favorite superpowered toddler, battles…a nasty cold! Hopefully the rest of the Parr family can stay healthy, because normal denizens of Metroville are starting to exhibit superpowers. Can The Incredibles discover the cause of both outbreaks before the city is left in total shambles?
If you a fan of the movie you will like this book. Though the write up for the above solicitation isn’t what’s really going on in this issue. It’s still the build up to that part of the story ark. I think that plot point won’t start till issue three.
Mark Waid has a good handle on the universe that the Incredibles takes place in. It’s a parody of superhero comics, but not in a condescending 60’s live action Batman way. It’s more like a Joss Whedon show taking place in a world with Loony Toons like physics. The characters them selves point out the absurdity of the world they live in.
The Art by Marcio Takara is solid, but seems a little rushed compared to his other work. Deadlines will do that. I also like his work better when he gets to color it him self. One of the things I like about his style is that he uses color to give depth and definition rather than relying on inks. You can see more of his work and find out more about him in the Outhouse interview at this link!
Another good issue of the Incredibles! Would love to see this story line animated.
