THE FINAL CHAPTER OF THE MAESTRO TRILOGY BEGINS! A.I.M., the Pantheon and even Doctor Doom have all fallen before the might of the Maestro! Finally, he may now reign over his kingdom with a firm green fist. Except he didn’t count on the Abomination rising from the dead and forming an alliance with Namor and Doom! And this dangerous new alliance is ready for war—WORLD WAR M!


Having read Peter David’s previous two Maestro offerings, I was excited to pick this book up. And it did not disappoint. The issue itself starts off with an opening sequence involving the Abomination and it sets the tone for the whole book. That being said, if you haven’t read the previous books from Peter David then you may be slightly confused as to what is going on. I would highly recommend picking these up before starting this one! The supporting cast help elevate this book to another level and this promises to be a fantastic finale.


Looking at the artwork, it is a tale of two parts. Pasqual Ferry and Matt Hollingsworth partner up to deliver the opening act which has a certain cartoon like feel to it. It’s not unpleasant but it feels slightly out of place given what we have to come to expect from previous Maestro books. Thankfully German Peralta and Jesus Aburtov cover the artwork for main body of the book. And the pair combine to great effect with some simply stunning visuals. A stand-out for me was the depiction of the grizzled Abomination and that of Namor. The level of detail with these characters really is sublime.


It’s all been leading to this and now Peter David has to bring the Maestro Trilogy to a conclusion. Given how good this issue is, I can’t wait for the next as this promises to be an action-packed roller-coaster. David gives us a storyline which does not pull it’s punches, literally! And with the supporting characters he’s deploying, this looks to be a Battle Royale for Maestro. Not only is this a fascinating read, the artwork from Peralta and Aburtov jumps off the pages and makes you take notice. Highly recommended book for all Hulk/Marvel fans.
