Does anyone else read Strange Academy? Thoughts on this title?
- Spoiler: show
This is a better issue of a series I have not been too impressed with. This title has a large cast and yet none of the students really stand-out to me (I actually would like to see the instructors more often). But here we do at least get the delicious drama of a murder mystery, even if its solution ultimately ends up being pretty basic (and heavily foreshadowed a couple issues ago). I normally am not at all a Howard the Duck fan but he is used to good effect here. This issue has a dark subject matter but bringing in Howard allows them to keep it light at the same time. It was an entertaining issue and hopefully the start of a stronger arc.
Also remember when they tried to make Weirdworld happen? lol. I actually thought it was kind of interesting but it feels like once Marvel acquired Conan again they quickly pushed it out the window, though it lives on in this series.
