Review: Champions #18

CHAMP-1The new order changeth! After a series of tragic setbacks and shakeups, the Champions are faced with a grim decision – is it finally time to disband and give up the fight?

As I’m sure our regular readers have seen on this site, I am a huge fan of this book.  Right from issue one this book hit the ground running and gave us a great team of heroes who wanted to go out and change the world. They didn’t want to just go out and stop the bad guys, they wanted to spread their message around; make everyone a Champion.  The last few issues, however, have been dealing with problems more close to home. Mark Waid wraps things up in this issue, and really makes this personal for the team and gets them back on track with their mission statement; make everyone the hero; a champion. As past issues have done, this one really highlights the bond of this team, the founding members anyway, but also does a good job of bringing in the latest recruits, really showing us that the Champions and their cause are here to stay. I’d be lying if I didn’t say i wasn’t a little hesitant to see which new recruits stick around; I have been with this team from the start, and they have a dynamic and connection that a new member can easily throw out of whack. But, they have done a good job introducing these new members and how they interact with the originals, so I’m hoping the transition will be smooth and the book doesn’t suffer.

And as usual, Humberto Ramos is nothing but stellar with the art in this issue, and the book as a whole.  This is combined with colorist Edgar Delgado and inker Victor Olazaba. I have long said that Ramos was the best choice for this book and I stand by that statement now. His style is absolutely perfect for a youthful group of superheroes with every page showing emotion and action and just really bringing the narrative to life. Of course, the colors and ink work play in connection with this, but this team has been nothing but excellent, bringing life to these characters issue after issue.

As I’m sure you can tell, I loved this issue. It brought the current story arc to a close and reaffirmed the strong bond this team has for each other. Yes, there is a change to the team line up and as much as I am sorry to see one character leave, and I am excited to see where this team goes next. But not only is the team line up changing in the book, but the creative team on this book is changing as well. And that has me nervous. Jim Zub will be taking over the writing duties while Sean Izaakse will be taking over the art. Waid and Ramos have really given life to this book, and I can only hope that once the torch is passed, Champions is still as great as it has been. I’ll remain cautiously optimistic and stay excited to see where this book goes next.

Review: Champions #7

untitledTHROWDOWN WITH THE FREELANCERS!

Well, we finally get the showdown that was promised in issue #6, but the Champions aren’t ready for what they’re about to find out and I think it hurts them a lot more than any punch could.

The Champions have to deal with the events from the last issue, and Mark Waid brings us a story that really deals a bad blow to the team and really shakes them up. This is especially felt through Ms. Marvel and Waid does a fantastic job of showing the gravity of the situation through this character. From the get go of this title, she was easily the strongest, most positive voice of the team. Her optimism and determination has definitely been a huge influence to her teammates, and it’s really hard to watch as all of that slowly starts to crumble after the events of this issue. I also enjoyed how this issue showed her naivety after discovering what the Freelancers had been a party to. It’s great to want to go out there and give people something positive to believe in, but this issue shows how easily it can be distorted to work against you. And through Ms. Marvel we see how devastating this can be; how the fear of losing it can really take a hold of you, and I think these events are going to stay with her for some time.

And as I have mentioned in my other reviews for Champions, I absolutely love Humberto Ramos‘ art on this book.  His style really gives this book the fresh, youthful feel it deserves for these characters, and his action scenes are big and bold, which is also due to the great coloring provided by Edgar Delgado. I will never get tired of seeing their work and I really hope they never leave this title. I really think this title would lose something important if the art was to change.

Overall, I really enjoyed this issue and if it wasn’t too obvious, I am a huge fan of this team. This entry really dealt them a blow, and I am very interested in seeing how or if they can overcome and rise above it. The writing is solid, the art is fantastic and this book continues to deal with subjects and issues that are relevant and have an impact on us today. If you aren’t reading this book, what the heck are you waiting for? And if you are, I really hope you are enjoying it as much as I am.
