Wilson again nails emotion, dialogue, and character development, with an original plot. The art services the script well, with occasional eye-catching details in the background.

Awesome script and great art by Miyagawa. Wilson writes great supporting characters. Her scene of Nakia is well done. This book is so consistently good that i can't remember reading a bad story since it started.

This issue was interesting. Definitely low on the action, but it actually really didn't need it at all. I like that Kamala didn't do a very silly thing and stayed heroic throughout the book. Honestly I'd say the issue really shines when it focuses on her supporting cast. All in all it's another solid entry in a quality series.

I'm just sooooo glad what Doc X made Kamala's friends do didn't end up like hey guess what so am I!!!!! Nakia's words were poignant and the way to handle the situation correctly. I also enjoyed the Bruno interaction. Miyagawa is flassleww as usual.

Immonen and Slott work well together and the story flows with good developments. Camuncoli's story with Slott is also good and very promising. But the rest is filler. This is not going to help this book get any new readers.

This such a fun book. I liked the way Duggan uses Deadpool and Rogue. Great interactions. Libranda has a lovely style. Anime-ish? but better. I can't explain it but it fits so well and matches Larraz's style.

I think it is great that Nick Spencer is not afraid to dive in deep when it comes to social issues. It is fitting for the character to focus on the divide happening right now and this issue does not hold back. So much so that this issue gets dark at the end implying a major problem stemming from this one event. While the guest artist is not as impacting for me it still works. The focus is more on more
