For January’s Comic Book club, we had to read Identity Crisis by Brad Meltzer!
I had this book in my collection for a few years but never got to it. Normally I do not go out to the comic store in the winter due to the sidewalk is covered by snow or ice but last week it was warm so i wanted to join in the book club but I have not read it yet, so last Monday I started to read it hoping to finish it before Wednesday!!
Needless to say I did not finish it by the book club, I finished it today.
All over Comic Fandom, when this book is talked about you have people loving this book and others hating this book! I fall on the 2nd side but I would not say I hated it but i will say I do not like it and it is not one of those Comics that is a must read! My reasons are below;
- It is to wordy – It shows that Brad Meltzer is not a full-time Comic Book writer. Let your artist speak for you instead of telling every detail in words.
- I liked that you did need to read any of the other books to understand what is going on.
- I did not like all the back and forth in the timeline, to confusing!!
It did open my eyes to other characters I never heard of and someday will read more!
The main reason I did not like this book was feeling I had to read this and I did not enjoy reading it!!
The next book is Old Man Logan by Marvel and I loved this book!!!!!
