    This review is from: The Red Wing TP (Paperback)
    To preface this, I've been a fan of Jonathan Hickman's previous work, specifically "the Nightly News" and "Pax Romana." Despite some exemplary art from Nick Patarra and Rachelle Rosenberg, a promising idea is left to die on the vine by some mediocre storytelling. Another reviewer of this story commented that his primary complaint with Hickman's work is the feeling that essential parts of the story are being left out - this is an excellent example of that critique. One might wonder how this could have played out if the story had been given time to breathe. After all, the concept of fighting a war using time travel with the inherent challenges and dangers of that technology could have been thought provoking as well as exciting. Instead it is merely disappointing.

    NIGHTLY NEWS, RED MASS FOR MARS, a lot of Hickman's previous books were some of the best work in the last 20 years of comics. Hickman had that talent as a comic writer who got increasingly better with every comic he wrote, and THE NIGHTLY NEWS was an already high standard to top. But THE RED WING was a whole other kind of comic!

    The concept was a creative one: time travel used for warfare. It's brought about explosively in the first issue. And keeps the same steady flow throughout the series, but as most reviewers said, it doesn't take the course most fans wanted, which was to see the expansion of this new phase in history. Rather than diving deep into the background info of the setting, he catches us off guard by revealing the issue to be connected with smaller circumstances but equally dangerous results. It takes the "sins of our fathers will be paid with our children," approach to the narrative and in my opinion worked out rather well. I imagine any route Hickman would... Read more
