What I thought
I really did dig the cover on this one. The Re-entry of Kevin Brashear into our universe as Blue Marvel and Spectrum looks on. Everything is bathed in blue hues and tones and just looks awesome! I also really liked the art which was stylized an well suited to this high energy tale. Spectrum’s powers also get crazy spotlight as she checks the whole building in the blink of an eye, creates hard light constructs and just all around kicks ass. The budding relationship between herself and Blue Marvel also has all of my spider-senses tingling nonstop. You can complain all you want but this series has done wonders for both Spectrum and Blue Marvel as characters. We had humor, action, a touch of romance a nod to a fan favourite series, honestly this issue delivered on all levels!
Overall I must give this issue 4.5/5 stars
