Some thoughts about New Challengers #3
The original Challengers have appeared in front the new team and now the Professor has things to explain but there's no time for that since the unknown is coming.
This continues to prove that the Dark Matter line still has potential despite of quite a few misses.
This also proves to me that Scott Snyder still can tell a pretty interesting story without falling for his usual flaws, then again this is co-written by Aaron Gillespie and that might be the reason why I like it so much compared to other recent Snyder books. Unlike the current Justice League series, New Challengers doesn't bring the story down with overwritten dialogue and third-person narration and instead goes for more natural lines and interactions between the character which sells the idea of this team much more than the other examples.
Not only that but each issue gives each new character a solid depiction where their personalities and background shine. This time the focus goes to Krunch which gives us a better insight into his past, what made him this way and just like the others, he has a secret that is yet to be revealed. This is pretty much what titles like The Unexpected and The Immortal Men failed to do and where New Challengers succeeds, create interesting new characters to follow.
The plot also progresses at a nice pace and keeps bringing new interesting twists that makes me wonder what's going to happen next.
Andy Kubert and V. Ken Marion share the pencils and they're pretty good during their respective scenes although their styles don't mix particularly well with one another.
Great read overall, hope it keeps being just as good.
