If you haven't heard the news, Lemire, Smallwood, and Bellaire are wrapping everything up and leaving after issue #14. Part of me wants this run to keep going forever, but the other part is excited to finally have some closure. Either way, we should all be glad that we got to enjoy such an amazing Moon Knight story. "DEATH AND BIRTH: PART 2 OF 5." Things are ramping up towards an epic conclusion. more

Great world detail as always. Not sure I enjoyed the fairy character but I'll give her another issue to see if she develops beyond being a bit grumpy. Boone is acting more badass and the ending was extremely interesting, lots of questions about Boones past to be addressed in coming issues! Excellent series so far, often find myself gazing into the detailed world and feeling the.. ooooooo!

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!
