Hey Greg! Thought it was high time to enter my review for #5 Bash!!
First off, it's a shame I coudn't make it to this year's Gathering. However, now knowing that there's bound to be some surprises like Issuess 3,4,&5 for the Radio Play have finally given me the motivation to try Chicago (It's closer, so there's hope!)
Second, on my way to get this comic, I just BARELY got the last one. I followed your advice thi time, Greg and I told the clerk that if they keep running short (it was barely noon!) that they should start ordering more. He assured me that they would do so this September!
Anways, here's my thoughts for Bash:
Beautiful shot of the Eyrie Building. Nice to see the Third Quarter Moon too . . . reminder that it's only been about two weeks since Hunter's Moon.
Mary & Finella . . . Greg, you smug mastermind! You just love throwing little surprises like that, huh? :P
Nice to see Dr. Sato again, though I honestly forgot what he looked like since I haven't seen Deadly Force in about six months.
Brooklyn's costume was wonderful, and it was my brother who noticed that his red wings acted like his cape!
I always did love that line of Robbins' in Dying of the Light about Conrete & Leather, so I was glad to see that survive into Canon.
Quincy & Xanatos were quite fun to watch, especially Quincey's line of "Now don't get smart, boy!" Knowing his estamated age, Hemings has every right to call him that!
I noticed how Thailog kept retracting his blades and using new clean ones, and I first wondered, Does he have a Danny Tanner/Jerry Seinfeld complex of having to always be neat and clean? Then it all made sense: He was taking DNA samples. While I enjoyed this revelation, I was kinda surprised that Thailog would use an old tactic again, clearly when the last time resulted in losing the Clones.
However, I then remembered Xanatos telling Goliath that old habits die hard as well as the thought that maybe Thailog is merely using an old tactic for a new means . . . and as some have said below, he and Sevarius are probably planning an army.
The shot of Thailog & Brentwood leaving the Eyrie was spectacular, IMO.
Brooklyn has one of the best lines in this issue, "You gotta be kidding me!", while looking at Delilah & Malibu. Good lord, his luck is terrible . . . for now at least.
Finally, the new girl . . . well, we don't have to call her new girl anymore, now do we? Shari . . . and she's a rank of nine. And Thailog's a Thirty-six!! Wow . . . wonder what they did to earn those spots??
Speaking on the Illuminati Ranks:
It appears that only WE are surprised by Duval's Number with the fact that even Xanatos knows he's Number #2.
666 Members (or possible members) of the most influential people on earth . . . wow.
Who IS One? I guess we'll find out soon enough . . .
Anyways, #6 can't come soon enough! Thanks again for such a great return into the Gargoyles Universe!
You're welcome. Thanks for being there to read it!
