Comments: The cover has ANT sitting her butt on a Gods face.
We join our story in Toronto with a snowball fight. Malcolm and Captain Tootsie lead the boys against Gearbox and the girls. Malcolm and his wife Maxine share a moment.
Malcolm sure has a lot of drama in his life. it is hard to follow unless you have been following this series.
TThenwe switch to ANT and some big muscled Norse Viking guy called Toliver.
The coloring on ANT seems different at times. She goes from light red to a brighter flashier red. Also, the poses change and become much better with a sexual side to them. Malcolm joins her to battle this Toliver. Well, Ragnok’s body somehow separates from Toliver’s. Why does this happen who knows?
This issues switches scenes way to often. Toronto with Captain Tootsie and his kids, to Malcolm and ANT, to Malcolm’s home it needs to focus on one.
In the end, there is like an add on part to the comic. Malcolm is green skinned, ANT is sexy, and Spawn is there to to battle Monsteress and her army of creatures. This part leaves you hanging with no real ending.
There is way too much drama in this comic and not enough fighting the villains. The action is short lived.
ANT about a third of the way in starts getting drawn properly and she looks strong and gorgeous. She is a wonderful character but not used to her full potential.
