I thought it was great, especially the modern myth about the Shimmer, which seems to just be Springer appearing with his holo-emitter (and also explains why Kup was so scared of Springer appearing in Spotlight:Kup)
The ony part that majorly confused me was the Nightbeat giving evidence thing, since that implies that that inquiry thing was set before Revelations (when he died) but Flattop only got his new body a few months earlier, according to Rung
I only got round to reading this last night. Solid stuff generally, and I always approve of openings linking up with endings via the same use of words and a very good job of expanding on Ironfist especially. Major plus points for the inclusion of Xaaron.
Only off-note for me were the many references to 113, which I just don't get. I felt I was missing something there, which did pull me out of the story sometimes.
More prose short stories in this vein would be welcome.
I have to second that proposal, this was possibly one of the best trade paperback extras I have seen in a long time. Bullets was an absolutely wonderful piece. Although technically set before the mini it actually felt more rewarding to read it afterwards, as a continuation of the mini's peeling back of the layers of the characters.
Very effective fleshing out of Ironfist - I came away feeling I had seen new layers to him, just as I did to the whole issue of the tribunals.
On a note of the miniseries exploration of appearance and reality I found the Shimmer to be rather an interesting element. Whilst we might think of some of the 'bots as being superstitious about the phenomenon (dancing carefully around the issue in case anyone hasn't read it yet) they are in a sense right about what it likely implies for those who see it.... interesting to reflect on in the light of the "reality is not appearance" theme of the series, almost seeming to say "well, except when it is".
Great stuff though - the world-building was fantastic, a few lines here and there opening up a real sense of scope just off-stage in an otherwise quite tightly focused story.
