Now there’s a big surprise. Spencer was pretty cute the way he diverted attention from it; it works. Unfortunately, the issue is the first weak one in the series. Not because of the twist, but because backup artist George Perez apparently wasn’t hired to draw anything important.
Instead, Perez draws the T.H.U.N.D.E.R. orientation tour. It has nothing to do with the story itself. Maybe Spencer wanted to use it to distract the reader, but it’s not s good move. It’s suspicious. Like they wanted to have the Perez art whenever they could use it as a fill in.
Also, the twist leaves the series on somewhat unsteady ground. If Spencer’s messing with the reader about something so integral to the story so far… what’s next? There’s no point getting invested if anything goes.
It once again feels like an espionage thriller and not one set in the DC universe either
