Some things are as nothing against some other things.

There's a bit in the most recent Mighty Avengers run that illustrates this.

There's one in The Mutant Misadventures of Cloak and Dagger that does so in the same way.

What's being demonstrated is the exact same. )

Some come together through a looser affiliation.

The Assembly of Evil, a product of Acts of Vengeance, was one of those.

It came upon Cloak and Dagger, to recruit them.

It came on the heels of a lot that'd come. )

That's Spider-Island: Cloak & Dagger, which ended this week.

Snappily written by Nick Spencer and evocatively drawn by Emma Rios, its three issues go like Black Panther's one does in the Queen's greater scheme: perpendicular.

There's of course a point of intersection in #1 (remember Cloak as Wayfarer Guide in ASM 667?), but from there Cloak and Dagger's story goes its own way, parallel and tangent to the horrors of Spider-Island.

It ends independent of Spider-Island's conclusion, unlike its fellow tie-ins. To read it from Steve Wacker's words, that's because this's an opportune "new beginning" for Dagger and Cloak. There's no plans yet to go ahead with more, but if you'd like 'em to, well..

I'd love to, myself, for the art and the colors and the writing. Spencer brought to this the same deft combination of existing canon and his own ideas his licensed work seems to always have, and Rios, well.. either you know, or you'll see.

Combined, they not only depict the titular heroes well, but Chinatown gang boss and Spidey foe Mister Negative too. )
