Breathtaking art. Not a book I follow, but I'm into the Inhumans and get sucked into crossovers! I read in another review that IVX feels more like a war than Civil War II, and that's totally true. This is a gnarly book that adds some real colour and character to the main storyline of IVX - hope the regular readers of Uncanny X-Men didn't mind the intrusion!

I was a bit scared after issue 11 that this series was starting to slide, but I'm happy to report it was a blip. This Christmas (sorry - Saturnalia!) themed issue is a lot of fun, and my girlfriend's vacuum cleaner is in it. Seriously, Cap has her vacuum cleaner.

Superb. Mesmerising. Challenging. I have enjoyed every bit of this volume of Moon Knight, and this issue takes a step back into Marc's childhood and makes the reader wonder about everything that has happened up to this point. Brilliant writing by Lemire and Smallwood's art is some of the best yet of the series.
