First Look for January 8, 2018
As I look at the two issues for my first look today, I see that both are looking at worlds shattered into pieces. In Letter 44 #9, we see ex-President Carroll searching desperately for a country to support his cause while the astronauts up on the Clarke witness the destruction of a moon. If the aliens can shatter a moon, what could they do to their tiny ship? And what might they be planning to do to Earth. Obviously the current President is concerned. On the other side of things, we see Vision, in Avengers #24.1, picking up the pieces of the life that was literally torn apart from him. It’s taken a while but he’s whole again physically, we just need to see if he can put back the pieces of his emotional life as well. Both issues are well drawn and easily convey the emotions of the characters going through these difficult events and they entice the reader to continue on with the stories they tell.
