Deathlok Issue 8 Review With Spoilers

Spoiler Warning!

   I wanted to like this issue... but there are too many logic fails. First up is Michael Collins (the Deathlok created by Dwayne McDuffie) still being able to act as Deathlok after appearing mostly human. Not explained are the two hows of this situation. How did he do the quick change with no apparent bag containing his stuff? We also have to ask: How human is Michael now?

   Next we have the problem of it being a very quick interlude that is more interesting than the main story. This problem is due to the logic fail caused by how the series has been paced as a whole. It is like a really long thriller movie with glacial pacing. This is issue 8 of a series that has so little development it brings new meaning to written for the trade. I mean S.H.I.E.L.D. is still basically at square one in their search for the new Deathlok and the bad guys.

  Finally neither the art or writing explain to us why the new Deathlok suddenly got the ability to reboot his health/system. What did they include video game coding in this version?

  I will say the art, coloring and lettering are the only saving graces of this issue. However I can not recommend an issue with these kind of fails.
