"Construct the most prestigious Akropolis and develop cohesive districts for your citizens. As you create new buildings, you will expand your city - either spreading out or building up.

Preview



Frank Castle vs. the Paguro family


Plot

Back at the Paguro base, the team is tearing through the bad guys, despite the Paguro throwing everything they have at them. Venom is overwhelmed and lets the symbiote take over, but things get complicated when the Terrigan Mists of the Attilan Bomb turn the Nobili family into Inhumans.

And Deadpool finally gets his pizza.

Review

Deadpool and Rulk/Leader do a lot to drive this story forward, largely in part because the Punisher’s mission is kind of… boring. We get some nice interplay between the characters and it’s nice to see Flash go a little crazy with the symbiote, but nothing really happens until the end of issue 17. The Thanos invasion part of this tie-in was kind of useless, but the twist with the Terrigan Bomb altering the (quasi) villains of the piece was unexpected and could lend a lot to make this mission stronger. I would have liked to have seen more than just three people turn, but… well, the team killed nearly everyone else in the vicinity.

Artwork wise, these issues are a disappointment. Jefte Palo doesn't do anything all that original, the fight scene are kind of boring, and his faces really start to blur together. That’s not to say it isn't without it perks; Elektra has a fun interrogation scene involving her sais, Venom looks fantastically terrifying, and the aliens are wonderfully… alien looking. But in 44 pages of artwork, I can only think of maybe five pages that I consider well done. These style is really loose and doesn't work well in the fight scenes at the Paguro's; it never looks like Elektra actually hits anything with her blades, same with Frank and his bullets. The colors are the same old, same old, not much to say there.
