Rating - 3.5: worth reading, parts worth re-reading (borrow or buy it)
You're still on the Global Frequency. Miranda Zero leads 1,001 freaks, geeks, and security risks, a collection of experts that constitute a global rescue organization. They find threats and fix them. The twelve-issue limited series concludes.
Again, the series is entirely episodic, so we have six short stories. The feel is somewhat different because of stories with less dialogue and more visceral trauma. The Global Frequency team does not get away as cleanly; there are more noble sacrifices as part of the heroism.
This half is slightly less episodic because Miranda Zero and Aleph both get their own issues. They are central in their own stories, rather than supporting cast for the guest stars. Miranda is tough and sensible, while Aleph is enormously likable.
One issue is Japanese horror, with perfect tone. Not especially my thing, but crafted well. The big fight issue does not work as well in this half. Instead of a running firefight, it is just a drawn-out melee, without the supporting dialogue. The sci fi issue deals with orbital bombardment, which is a threat most of us don't know to worry about.
It's good. We have fewer fun guest stars than in the first half, but there are a few. We get to build a little with Miranda and Aleph.
I understand that there is a television series in the works again. That could be a fun show, with a big chance for being hit or miss. Unless they are vastly outnumbered, the hits are the important thing.
