The pace works for me, but the true test will be when I sit down to read it all at once (which I probably will due when the last issue ships, before I read the last issue, whatever issue that turns out to be). How does it feel compared to the original? I must admit it's different... very different. I'm liking the new series just as much if not more than the original. Having read the original series is not a prerequisite for reading the new, but it adds an additional dimension. Nor do I feel in any "cheated" for having followed the original only to have it change direction in the relaunch. I think the change is justified because 17 years have passed. YMMV
It has now been 2½ years since I re-read the first 31 issues of JBNM and set about reading the revival, which came to an end (?) this week with the release of issue #44. I’ve enjoyed #32-44, but I’ve read them all only once each. The series came to a satisfying conclusion, but there were so many twists and turns (not to mention all the twists and turns leading up to it), my advice to anyone interested would be not to read it until/unless you have a firm grasp of the story up to this point. I’ll be re-reading these issues in their entirety one of these days, and I know from experience that this series reads better in a single sitting.
I'm holding my breath on this one.... I found the last few issues to be very confusing and not at all easy to follow. Hopefully, this one will make it all make more sense.
