Uncanny #6 Season of the Hungry Ghost Part 6 Comic-Book Review
Uncanny #6 Season of the Hungry Ghost Part 6 opens with one of the coolest moments in this comic thus far, which would make Michael Bay proud. In fact if you’re a fan of action movies and trillers this book should be on your monthly pull list! There’s just something special about seeing superhuman abilities utilized in non-superhero comics that make them more real. And, the scary part is that many of the abilities manifested in this issue such as neural induction and remote conscious altering are based off of real science to some degree.
There are a lot of great moments here starting with Deacon Style’s explosive intro, Maggie Ford’s great escape, and Weave finally putting the pieces of the puzzle together and realizing that Maggie and him have been used by Styles from the start! And, if you’re reading this thinking that I’ve spoiled the issue for you think again, Andy Diggle has more than one ace up his sleeve and you’re going to love the big reveal this issue!
Diggle has outdone himself with this issue, by giving the reader answers to questions that have been hunting this series since issue one. My only gripe is that some of these answers may have come too soon. The dialogue between Ford and Weaver was revealing, however you can’t help but wonder how much Ford really knows, because she was simply acting as a sounding board. But, then again who is Weaver anyway?
Aaron Campbell has outdid himself art wise and his storytelling abilities are what sells this issue. He’s not a pin up artist and every panel isn’t meant to be pretty. Campbell is an artist that knows how to breakdown story beats and create a cinematic feel that makes you want to see this comic made into a movie! He’s definitely at the top of his game.
Uncanny #6 Season of the Hungry Ghost Part 6 serves as the perfection conclusion to this story arc. Andy Diggle and Aaaron Campbell have given the reader a book that made no promises when it first hit the stands, and it received little fanfare or promotion. Now, after having read this book I’m hoping that those who haven’t joined the bandwagon will hope on board, because I have a feeling that Uncanny Season Two will be more than worth the wait!
