Neither is a masterpiece, but this week's Pax Americana is an almost perfect example of Grant Morrison's style (taking existing characters and plots and reworking them with Baroque levels of multi-layered symmetry and meta-narrative meaning) (although perhaps Morrison has gone past the line of diminishing returns on this), while Brian Wood's Moon Knight #9 is kind of brilliant, looking at first like it's just staging a more nuanced version of the old "should vigilantes kill?" argument, but then going somewhere with the story that it's just *fantastic*, and could only happen in comics (no, seriously, the more I think about it, the more I like it, and wish I had written something like that).Neither is a masterpiece, but this week's Pax Americana is an almost perfect example of Grant Morrison's style (taking existing characters and plots and reworking them with Baroque levels of multi-layered symmetry and meta-narrative meaning) (although perhaps Morrison has gone past the line of diminishing returns on this), while Brian Wood's Moon Knight #9 is kind of brilliant, looking at first like it's just staging a more nuanced version of the old "should vigilantes kill?" argument, but then going somewhere with the story that it's just *fantastic*, and could only happen in comics (no, seriously, the more I think about it, the more I like it, and wish I had written something like that).
