Who shot the watcher?
Last Original Sin review. Marvel's summer series, Original Sin, starts NOW! Who watches the watcher? And who shot him?! Jason Aaron, Mike Deodato, and Frank Martin are here to answer these questions! NEXT REVIEW!
In this issue, the Watcher dies! Jason Aaron sets the stage for the events that are to come in this main series and also the spinoff titles that involve the Watcher's all seeing eyes. If you are interested in a bit of mystery and sins of popular Marvel heroes; then this series is for you!
Jason Aaron did a pretty good job at setting up this series! It was handled really well by him. He played the beginning off like it was just an average day for the heroes and they soon get witness of the Watcher's death. I like how Aaron made the Watcher actually know that he was going to die, and it being this giant story of the heroes finding answers. I'm really interested as to seeing how Nick Fury's band of misfits (team) will come into play during these eight issues. Obviously this being the first issue, a lot of mystery was involved; but Jason Aaron handled it so well that it makes you want to come back for the other issues!
The artwork is perfect. Mike Deodato's art is definitely on my top 10 list of Marvel artist. He always adds this serious/thriller look to any book he works on; and I'm glad he's working on this main series.
No complaints! I had my doubts before this series was released; but after reading this issue, I'm really looking forward to getting all my questions answered!
I recommend you try Original Sin. It is going to be an exciting series that is built around everything the Watcher sees; and because of it, we are also going to see the sins of our favorite characters! If you aren't into the whole idea of, "buying every single issue from a story arc", I recommend just buying the main series [which is this one]. It's only going to be eight issues and this issue is proof enough that it's going to be a jammed pack eight issues over the next couple of months. So in the end, try it out, and if you don't like it; just don't read! 5 out of 5.
