After figuring out what is really going on, Dash breaks free of Mesmerella’s spell and saves the day. However, the whole experience has left him rather shaken up. Bob and Helen discuss whether or not putting the kids in danger is a good idea or just inevitable. Meanwhile, more villains are given letters.
What they got right: Only once has an entire comic won my “Best Scene of the Week” award, Supergirl: Cosmic Adventures in the 8th Grade #5 (another Landry production). I promised myself that I wouldn’t do that again, as it didn’t real feel fair or something. (Also, I haven’t had time to do that kind of animation.) This comic is a strong case for changing my mind. It’s the best use of my favorite Incredible.
What they got wrong: Nothing. Seriously.
Recommendation: If you pick up only one story arc, make it this one. Then again, I’m rather biased, so judge accordingly.
