And, we get to see Flagg for the first time. It’s only a glimpse in Stu’s dream but he will be a mean bastard in this comic let me tell you that. Mike Perkins has captured him perfectly and I can’t wait until we get to see more of him.
Another thing that I really like about this issue is how the spreading of the virus is illustrated. It gives me the creeps and for a comic to do that you can tell it’s extremely well done. Mike, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and colorist Laura Martin has done a wonderful job in bringing all the characters, and specially Flagg to life.
Besides just the comic we also get an interview with Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, images of Nick Andros from the Sketchbook and a sketch of a cover for issue #1 by Lee Bermejo. All packed in a very nice issue that you really don’t want to miss.
