In for me this week were five comic books; Ten Grand #1 (which I've already talked about right here http://acomicbookaddict.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/read-ten-grand-1-and-loved-it.html ), The Activity #12, Action Comics #20, Earth 2 #12 and Indestructible Hulk #7, which is a big haul by my standards, though not as big as big as it should have been due to my local shop running out of Snapshot #1 (dramatic fall to my knees and reach up in the air "NNNNOOOOOOOOO!!!!"). So, surely it was a good week? Well, sadly not, though in fairness it could have been a lot worse. However, half of this weeks books failed to hit the mark.
For instance, the Activity #12, after a somewhat long hiatus (I don't remember when I last saw a new issue) left the prior cliffhanger up in the air with a one-off issue detailing a past mission of a member of the team. Now, this issue was a good little story, however after waiting a while to see movement in the big storyline Nathan Edmondson was setting up previously, it felt like an unneccessary diversion which I struggled to get into. However, struggling to get into the story was probably down to my struggle to follow the Mark Laming's art. Maybe I've gotten too used to Mitch Gerads work in this book, but when most the characters look identical (and not like any of the regulars) it's difficult to know what relevance this story has. Hopefully, the next issue will be a return to form, but this got my reading time off to a bad start.
