Operating under the assumption that the internet still exists or you couldn't read this, it has finally arrived and it is...um, not bad.
Like a toddler that's been given the keys to an excavator, it's kinda fun to watch, a little sad somehow, and it manages to turn over a few rocks while making a big multi-colored pile of fun rubble.
It's a fine story by Aaron and Ribic, but if you were hoping to have less versions of your favorite guys, you'll be "treated" to still more variants of some characters.
The story does tease some whimsical possibilities, somebody comes back, a prehistoric Ghost Rider shows up but he's not riding anything...yet, and Deadpool sitting in a bathroom.
Highly recommended for eternal Cubs fans, folks who ordered Image United, and people who love the McRib.
Also, it's Citizen Kane compared to Secret Empire, so that happened...
Bonus Review By Kevin!
I'm an eternal Cubs fan. If the only complaint I have is that I'd have had Esad Ribic do the pages with different heroes, I've decided that's not much of a complaint. Be ready to be super excited for Waid/Samnee's Captain America, the return of the northern man, at least one GIAAAANNNTTT hand, and instructions on exactly where to go to follow the after effects of this story. I'd give it 7.5 Grahams if we could crack a cracker.
I give it 7 out of 10 Grahams
