Uncle Sam and the Freedom Fighters #6 (of 8 ) (DC – Palmiotti / Gray)
Red Bee’s amped-up powers are tearing the Freedom Fighters apart. Will the reappearance of a long-forgotten hero be enough to fix things? Meanwhile, the plan to return Doll Man to human size is set in motion…too bad the process has some deadly consequences!
I am sad to say that this series is dropping fast. Uncle Sam is trying to embrace the revival of the pulp genre and it’s not hitting the mark. And it’s missing simply because it’ trying to do too much… alien invasions, mad science gone awry, mystic mutations and long lost heroes coming back… not to mention the author is trying desperately to show character growth and the struggle of individualism and patriotism.
These are fantastic characters, and the creators have mad talent. But this second series is too much, too fast and it’s ending up a blurry mess.
