Weirdworld #4

   It's only appropriate that the series titled Weirdworld is the strangest of the Secret Wars spin-offs.

   (Though to be fair, I should admit I haven't read all of them. Or even most of them. But I think it's a safe call.)

   The mini-series has followed Arkon (the barbarian) as he searches for his idyllic home world, Polemachus. He knows it is hidden somewhere on Weirdworld - but he can't find it.

   He's battled an assortment of enemies - both monster and human - but may have met his match in Morgan Le Fey's enforcer, Skull the Slayer.

   But as the cover indicates, they'll both have to survive an encounter with a certain mindless much-monster in the Land of the Man-Things.

   Despite being on the grim side (Arkon isn't the easiest guy to like), this has been an entertaining series as it touches on some of the most bizarre corners of the Marvel Universe.

   Somehow, the whole thing will wrap up next issue - I can't wait to see how (or if) the creative team manages to make it happen!

Grade: A-

Weirder than Thors? Thors is pretty weird to me. Good, but weird...

"Thors" is pretty weird, but not nearly as weird as "Weirdworld."
