    This one left me sort of empty. I really enjoyed #2, issue 1 was interesting but not a lock and I feel like this one is going in the wrong direction.....

Yeah, #2 -- AND #1 -- were both much better in both story AND (appropriate to tale) art! Althooough it was this "plain" story that dulled perception of the imagery choices here. This was certainly was "a disposable installment", as Daveym noted. Green Warlock is such a boring character since his boring intro in the recent Avengers annual. Plus, all we get is his briefest of long-lived murderous backstory - so what, his "big draw" is that he may be a spellcasting "Vandal Savage"? And this skimping on Agatha intel is getting frustrating. All we get "she" here "confirms" she is "dead" AND as a spirit she is ("oddly") limited to where she can travel compared to coporeal mortal form of Wanda. So essentially we get nothing.

    I can't put my finger on the problem but like many of the All New, All Different Marvel books I am collecting, I want to like them for various reasons but I am just not.

This series really has had interesting and intriguing potential 'til now. Now from 2 for 2 it drops 33% to 2/3. \:\(

    As for the art work and varying tones of the first three books, it reminds me of Robinson's last Shade mini-maxi series (12 issues I think?), different artist for each arc) he did for DC, which was excellent

Interesting referencing.
