Vibe #8 Review and *SPOILERS*

Written By: Sterling Gates
Art By: Andres Guinaldo
Cover Price: $2.99
Release Date: October 16, 2013

Sword and Sorcery and Vibe

When last we saw Vibe he went through a dimensional tunnel chasing his brother Armando (Rupture), who had kidnapped Gypsy.  So let's continue down the rabbit hole.

Explain It!:

So Vibe's explaining to someone what happened to him.  Apparently Rupture pieced his chest, and what absorbing all of Vibe's dimensional energy.  When there was barely any left, Vibe fell through the multiverse.

When he came out he found himself on Gemworld.  Now I did not read any of Sword and Sorcery, all the knowledge I have of this world was when Amethyst became a member of Justice League Dark for like two seconds.  But that's where Vibe showed up.  He touched Amethyst and she screamed, a big light show happened, and when Amethyst's army was about to stab the shit out of Vibe, Breacher shows up, and puts a arc reactor in Vibe's chest to keep him from blowing up.  The two disappear leaving Gemworld.

We find out that Vibe has been telling his story to Breacher, and a few armed mercenaries.  Breacher tells Vibe that he has just been recruited into his army.  Vibe protests until Breacher shows him the outside of this world.  Turns out that Armando came to this world, and with his new found power destroyed it.  Vibe freaks out, and is about to burst.  Breacher tells him to calm down, and control himself, otherwise the dimensional forces will "take him".  Vibe doesn't understand, so Breacher shows him.  Breacher takes off his helmet and shows that his body is just coursing with energy, and looks like his armor is the only thing keeping him together.  

In the end we find out that Gypsy is Breacher's daughter, and they must find her before Rupture takes her to his wife, and they use Gypsy to help them destroy Earth.

Bits and Pieces:

This book started out real strong, but over the last few months it has taken a down turn.  This issue sadly isn't helping.  The entire issue is a uninteresting recap of falling, and almost fighting, and then a dimensional temper tantrum.  The art was alright, but nothing spectacular.  Now that Vibe is confirmed cancelled, it won't have the time to find it's legs again, and that is sad, because this in the beginning was one of my more fun titles.  Should of just added Hawkman, and everyone would of been happy.
