Issue by Issue – Doc Savage #13 (2010, DC)

With the thirteenth issue of the book, it receives a new writer in cover artist J.G. Jones and a new artist in Qing Ping Mui. It was hopeful that with this advent, the book would turn the corner and become something of a good read, but this title seems to have been cursed from the outset for this story was not any better than any of the other books. The subject matter is a little more interesting as it is more of a pulp tale than any of the others, featuring a mummy that our hero and his allies must defeat. But much like the other tales, it is hard to get through, this time not so much from the writing point of view which is decent, but from the artwork, which is simply the worst possible fit for this book possible. Admittedly, it does have a certain kind of energy about it, but when it comes down to it, it is not attractive to the eye, at least in this setting. It almost hurts to think that this book lasted another five issues, and yet it did. Calling it poor is almost a favour.
