Luke Cage, Vol. 1 Review

    An interesting start to a series. The art is simple but dramatic, and Luke is written very well- his internal narrative is captivating, and the dialogue is pretty funny at times.However, the cast of characters is HUGE- and it's hard to keep straight all the names and faces, who's alive and who isn't. There's only time in these first 5 issues for a couple characters to stand out from the crowd. This kind of complexity doesn't have to be bad, but I don't think this series pulled it off all the way An interesting start to a series.

Not yet at least.I also continue to be frustrated by the "this thing makes people crazy and violent" trope, which is incredibly reductive and also boring for characterization.
