Rusty’s Comic of the Week: Wytches #5 | March 29, 2015

Wytches 5

Three comics left… and a little disappointing overall.

MULTIVERSITY: ULTRA COMICS #1 (Morrison / Mahnke / Alamy / Altaeb / Baron) DC

Multiversity has been hit and miss with an emphasis on hit. The strength has not been the ongoing story, however. Rather it was the glimpses of different worlds under the eye of Morrison.

This issue looked to be something different, and it was. This was closely tied in with an ongoing thread throughout the others and it was really going to… uh, no. Nice conceit but it really didn’t DO anything. For the first five to ten pages I was thinking, “This is going to be comic of the week.” By the time I was finished I thought, “Uh… so that was it?”

One issue left.

DAREDEVIL #14 (Waid / Samnee / Wilson) Marvel

After a great issue last time out, this one was quite disappointing. The ‘new’ Daredevil is kind of ridiculous and his sudden attitude change is a little spurious. This was also one of those kind of choppy reads. The intro of Owl’s daughter and suddenly they were teaming up with no real interaction… do you think Waid is trying to get his story in before everything god wall Secret Warsish?

One more issue for me.

WYTCHES #5 (Snyder / Jock / Hollingsworth / Robins) Image

This was very solid. It seems like a hard shift from spooky and mysterious to hard reality and… still pretty darned spooky. It started to feel less a psychological horror story and more a monster movie.

And when did Sailor’s dad become the star of the book?

All in all, good, scary comics.

One more issue for me.
