CBR Review: Journey into Mystery #626.1

I recently reviewed Journey into Mystery #626.1 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Open Journey into Mystery #626.1 and you’ll see an editor’s note on the first page: 'This issue takes place between panels 4 and 5 on page 21 of Journey into Mystery #622. In case you were wondering.' That and the fact that this issue isn’t written by the series' regular writer, Kieron Gillen, gives a pretty good idea of how much this comic relates to the actual series. Then again, why a comic that began six months ago needs a ‘jumping on’ point is beyond me. For regular readers of the title, nothing new happens here and, for new readers, little that relates to what’s actually happening in “Journey into Mystery” is shown. This is a mediocre, unnecessary comic."
