As Doctor Dynamo and his team learn the Exile has taken control of Squidious’ former soldiers and is working on gaining access to inner-Earth Derek must also deal with the gravest threat to his world – a homeschool evaluation.
Derek’s quandary over taking part in the mission and reporting to Miss Finkle for his grade school exemption is solved by doing both at the same time, with the help of an android duplicate. Of course when things get too crazy in the field and the android malfunctions Derek finds himself under fire from two sides.
Although the idea of Derek fighting off monsters underwater while controlling the android from thousands of miles away is an interesting (if highly implausable) one, the reveal doesn’t work as well as it should.
There’s plenty of actions, and a couple of fun moments, but I’m a little afraid Robert Kirkman and Jason Howard’s latest comic (much like Astounding Wolf-Man) may have peaked too soon. Here’s hoping next issue ramps up the zany fun. Worth a look.
