CBR Review: Doc Savage #7

I recently reviewed Doc Savage #7 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "The problem with the first half of the comic is a mixture of the writing and art. Ivan Brandon’s dialogue mimics some of the more obtuse and suggestive elements of Brian Azzarello’s, but doesn’t provide enough context at times. While Nic Klein’s art is very attractive and worth poring over, there are some baffling storytelling choices. A big one happens when Savage steals a vehicle, uses an item of some kind to keep it driving so he can use the gun mounted on the roof to shoot mortars from the air, but, at some point, the vehicle stops on its own and he continues shooting them from a stopped position. Where and how the truck stopped is never seen: one panel, it’s driving at top speed on automatic and, the next, it’s stopped."
