Brubaker goes with a simple conclusion—not out of Tom Strong, but keeping with his Moore fascination on this series, out of Watchmen—and it works. Maybe it doesn’t, I don’t know. He ends the series with a lovely setup for a third Incognito and that setup works and so it just makes me want another one more.
Actually, I should be upset. The entire series was just a setup to get Zack to where Brubaker ends this issue. Brubaker even reveals a certain logic to the series (it takes place over a week) and he could have used it during, having each issue take a day or whatever.
Not only didn’t he use that pacing, he didn’t even mention it being a week or having a particular timeline until the last issue.
Still, it’s hard to be upset. It’s a good trip, with Brubaker avoiding his usual Marvel missteps.
