    So its safe to say that theres a lot of good talent in Hoary Hosts of Hate and, as a result, this second story helps make at least this first issue of the series worth the admission price and a good opportunity for those looking to explore more about Marvels latest event, and writers that readers may not be overly familiar with.

    The second story reunites the X-men Legacy team of writer Simon Spurrier and artist Tan Eg Huat. This tale focuses on Doctor Strange, who unlike Spider-Man is very much afflicted by an excess of hate. This allows Spurrier to pour his trademark sense of snarky humor into Strange without it feeling out of character. The loopy premise also plays well into Huat's style, which sometimes struggles to mesh with the Marvel Universe. Strange's attempts to rectify the situation and avoid magically obliterating everyone he encounters makes for an entertaining read. It also makes you wonder if the character might not benefit from a harder, more caustic edge in general. Food for thought as Marvel begins spotlighting the character again. Read Full Review

    These two part mini stories can be really hit or miss and in AXIS: Revolutions #1 readers get a little of both. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Oct 30, 2014

    Marvel has been cranking out event stories and garnishing the presentation with additional tie-ins and crossovers, but in this case, the presentation suffers. Anyone buying this comic book for an appearance from their favorite character is certain to be disappointed, while any event completionists are set up for confusing continuity at best and frustrating dismissal of it at worst. "AXIS: Revolutions" #1 is a comic book with a pair of stories that are fine on their own, but really add nothing to the grander Marvel Universe in general. Read Full Review
