The first issue is fine.
It reads fast. It feels a little thinner than most issues of the ongoing series (or even Countdown
), but it feels more substantial than any issue of the recent Assimilation2
In terms of story, it feels very retro -- strange new worlds and a Prime Directive puzzle. The character work is fun.
There's no indication as to where this is going or how it will lead into the film. It feels like it's simply the next issue of the ongoing series.
