The subtraction of a Sorcerer Supreme is going to mean an addition to the Bloodstones...
- Spoiler: show
I would say this tie-in is for Bloodstone fans only (meaning the family, not the gems. I guess it would be for those just fans of the gems too though why would you be fans of the item? Seems weird) as the story in itself isn't compelling enough. But for those characters this is actually a pretty impactful issue. Obviously the biggest is that they gain a member of their family. Also Cullen is finally separated from the monster inside. And Elsa seems to have a change in her mindset, though honestly I would be surprised if it sticks (a monster hunter is going to monster hunt). Plus the nullstone's presence should stabilize and amplify their abilities and now their manor is a magic-free zone. These are all elements that could form a strong base for a mini and I am sure Tini Howard would love to write it, but I am not sure the Bloodstones have the fanbase to justify it. I guess the reception of this issue will help determine that.
As for the art, everything looks great (especially the monsters) by Ig Guarra. However as someone who read Avengers Arena I always thought Cullen was a child. He is definitely drawn to look like an adult here.

I understood him to be highschool age during AA. I just figured he was short/a late bloomer. He was definitely portrayed similarly to this in Excalibur.
