And I don't know if that's why, but it happens to be the WEAKEST week of Secret Wars to date. Before we get into the week's review, then, let's remember why we're here, with a rundown of where the Dino Wars are actually being fought...
Where Monsters Dwell has
I definitely prefer it when Battleworld gets whimsical, so the comedy of Deadpool's Secret Secret Wars (not all THAT funny this time around, but it has its moments), seeing Throg the Frog of Thunder in Thors, Ms. Marvel's Last Days, and the high school shenanigans of the Runaways are immensely preferable to savage murders, rotting bodies and Old Man Logan slashing at everything (though Sorrentino's art on that is gorgeous). Squadron Sinister, to discuss what is perhaps the most egregious example, is very obviously meant to take a shot at DC's New 52, with not very altruistic versions of the Justice League fighting versions of themselves, and the Superman and Wonder Woman analogs having rough sex, it's not even funny. Subtle, it ain't. But had there been more tie-ins, the dreary ones would have been lost in the pile.
I can't believe I'm advocating for MORE tie-ins during a crossover event. I'm sorry.
Anyway... My 4 Favorite Moments of the Week? (Can't quite get to 5.)...
4. It doesn't matter of Groot is a Thor. Groot is Groot.
2. Spider-Ma finding the shields that came with the Secret Wars action figures! Remember those?!
