Notorious for the first comic book love scene (which is very stylish) and the return of Jimmy Woo from Strange Tales, this issue offers little else of great interest. The opening with Woo passing a final test of induction is exciting and is a nice way to reintroduce the character and the rest of the issue makes good use of him. The main plot involving Centuries is fantastically illustrated but the plot lacks punch. The inclusion of the film crew is silly and this time the mulit-track story did not come off so successfully.
