Marvel Adventures: Super Heroes #21
Marvel Comics (February, 2012)COVER ARTISTS: Carlo Pagulayan, Jeff Huet, & Chris Sotomayor LETTERER: Dave Sharpe PRODUCTION: Mayela Gutierrez ASSISTANT EDITOR: Ellie Pyle EDITOR: Tom Brennan SENIOR EDITOR: Stephen Wacker STORY 1: “The Big Idea” WRITER: J.M. DeMatteis PENCILER: Wellinton Alves INKER: Nelson Pereira COLORIST: Bruno Hang STORY 2: “Super Troupers” WRITER: Jen Van Meter ARTIST: Pepe Larraz COLOR ARTIST: Andres Mossa
In the first story, Dr. Strange calls on Captain America to help battle a demon. In the Hulk story, it’s Bruce’s turn to be taken in by a circus while on the run from mercenaries after the Hulk.
What they got right: Captain America wins just because he’s Captain America. I can get behind that, done right. Also, usually it’s the Hulk who finds a temporary sense of belonging in the circus, but this time it’s Bruce and I also like that.
What they got wrong: While the art wasn’t bad in the first story the colors seem rather muted compared to the cover, which has the art team that I wish did the insides of the book. This is especially true for the second story. I’ve seen worse art easily, but I personally wasn’t into it.
Recommendation: Not a bad comic but considering what I’m used to with this title it didn’t hit me quite as well as other issues. Still, it’s at least worth a look.
Couldn’t decide on a Best Scene.
