> To Tell you the truth AS a die Hard New Warriors fan, I am happy with this book.
AM a New Warriors fan, maybe not die hard anymore. Was for the first 25-30 issues of volume 1. Also was so happy to own 2 copies of THOR #212-213 (until the New Millenium - still have 'em but so what). This book has been hit and miss, this issue had LOTS more good than Machinesmith arc.
> It was set up for sales failure. A no name writer (whose improved dramatically)..a team consisting of NO old warriors, and whose actually IDs as X-cast offs, was held secret for several issues.
Read your observation to my NWMB post and now here more elaborated... Hmmm...
> If you were not a fan of Jubes or NT, this book probably wasn't for you. Personally, I love the Night Thrasher stuff..he's always been a fav of mine and Bandit seems to be doing just fine.
Not a fan of Jubilee but she has potential with NW. Really liked her settling up with Logan issue but have questioned her ongoing 'WE SHOULD QUIT' attitude being so ongoing and she still so NOTgoing (not that she should). Like NT, Dwayne or Bandit. And hope to see more development with Sophia who has been next most interesting.
> So I am happy it has made it to its solicited issue 17. People seem to really want an "old warrior" book, and this series when it does end will have helped convey that.
Like this anti-SHRA team concept, though it still needs work on execution. Looking forward to next SI issue(not so much how Slapstick appears drawn on cover)...
