From a literary point of view the focus is more on character growth in this book than in the previous two. Shang-Chi is finding it more and more difficult to deal with the constant violence and in one memorable scene breaks down completely. Moench's own cynicism comes to the forefront as MI-6 becomes a rogue agency and Smith and company quit and go into business for themselves. Fu Manchu has his obligatory story arc lasting seven issues but it is far more memorable for the character interactions than the plot. The latter started out interestingly enough but quickly left the rails and descended into inconsistency and absurdity. But most stories were entertaining and usually quite good and by the end of the volume all the characters have become more three dimensional and well rounded. The peak of the collection for me comes towards the end with the 100th anniversary issue.
Extras are rather thin with a few house ads and some original and unused art. But to compensate we get a bonus What If? issue which explores an alternate time line. Doug Moench also contributes yet another interesting six page introduction.
Highly recommended; if you liked the previous two volumes there's little reason to think you'll not like this one. Marvel is to be congratulated for making the effort to secure the rights to reprint this property with licensed characters.
No last minute fill ins to interrupt the muliti-part stories, solid art from Mike Zeck (and the late Gene Day detailed inks) and for the most part Moenchs scripts are exciting and innovative.
While I wish there were more extras, Moenchs lengthy introduction is a good read.
Good job finally reprinting these classic comic books.
