The GeeksverseREVIEW: Ant-Man & Wasp #2

REVIEW: Ant-Man & Wasp #2
Published on Wednesday, December 8, 2010 by

Ant-Man & Wasp #1 was a fun read so I was looking forward to reading over #2.
Tim Seeley: words and pencils
Val Staples: colors? (he’s on the cover but not noted on interior)
Victor Olzaba: inks
Simon Bowland: letters
Salva Espin & Guru EFX: Cover

I discovered O’Grady in his Irredeemable Ant-Man miniseries and found the character to be a great mix of “I love him” and “I hate him.” Tim Seeley delivered a familiar feeling character with a hint at the same supporting cast in the first issue (a pissed off former-love and criminal friend). That familiar feeling caries into issue #2. I agree with Troy’s quick reviewabout the banter between the reluctant partners.

One of the fun parts of the Irredeemable miniseries was the quirky talking ant first page recaps. The second issue of this team up three-part-er opens with a funny series of stick people recapping the opening issue.

The mindscape is easy to follow and easily explained in this comic. Mindscapes and subconscious tales can be dense at times. Seeley delivers a digestible dose of dreamland and techno-heaven in this issue.

Overall a fun read. I don’t like the old style Ant-suit. I preferred the slimmer more modern look of Irredeemable Ant-suit. I haven’t followed all of the antics between Ant-mini series so I am not sure when they put Eric O’Grady back into the older looking suit, but it does look clunky compared to Hank Pym’s sleek Wasp outfit. I suppose the contrast between generations is inverted and nice, but I would rather see the other suit.
