    Sometimes the best art is the kind you don't even notice at all, which is exactly what you get from Trevor Hairsine here. The figures are strong, the settings are detailed, and the action is crisp what more can you ask for? Not much I say, which is why I heartily recommend this book. Unless your first thought when you heard about the concept was "SACRILEGE!!!" If so, it's probably best you stay awayand possibly get some blood pressure meds. Read Full Review

The book has a sense of continuity, a solid command of tone and atmosphere and a gentle melancholy heart. Peter's transition from Russian farm boy to X-Man makes sense. What more could you ask from an origin book? Read Full Review
