I am hoping that this series has a happy conclusion, but everything up until now has been very well written and planned out. I feel that his may become a regular series based on the amount of success and praise it has been met with. The Hell landscape and anger from Emmett Quinlan were great additions to a already great story.

Yeah I agree. The first few pages were really sweet but that last fight was just lousy.

I always wonder if that is a writer or artist thing - how do you tie it up quickly but make it resonate. This book has a long enough track record that hopefully it's just a one-time thing!

Hmm... Ms. Marvel is usually one my favorite books from Marvel, but I thought the resolution was a little weak here. Doc.x' defeat didn't make too much sense to me, personally. The beginning with everyone coming together in the hallway was pretty great, however, and easily the highlight of the book for me.

This book always brings a smile to my face. There was a lot to like here, from the old school X-Men being, well, heroes, to the interactions between Annie and the X-Men. I appreciate how Conway is managing to show how things have gone slightly differently in this universe, what with the old Logan-Jean-Scott love triangle actually wrapped up pretty definitively here. Easily one of the best comic more

Have to say, this is definitely my book of the week. It's incredibly strong from start to finish, with a comforting/hopeful beginning, a wonderful bunch of interactions with Batman and Robin, and a hook at the end that confirms that the earlier foreshadowing *was* leading up to something. Definitely don't want to miss this one!

One of the few non Star-Wars Marvel books in my pull. I don't find this title spectacular by any means but it's just to satisfy the fact that I believe Pete and MJ should be together and allowed to have babies. I always have to compare this with the current Superman books because there's a similar dynamic with Clark, Lois, and Jon. But with Supes, the stakes are higher. Although enduring Bouncy Bu more

Another very quality issue for RYV! The best part is at the beginning, with the family interactions being the highlight of the book. The question of why Sandman is a villain again after the original RYV mini for secret wars wasn't answered, but really that was just a minor thing. All in all I definitely recommend this issue!

I feel cheated on two fronts.

First, the reveal of the whisper that brought down Thor feels like a reenactment of the Heckler messing up Happy Gilmore's mojo at a golf tournament.

Thor has had self-doubts in the past; heck, even Jane commented him having doubts is what made him strive to be a better god and be worthy of Mjolnir in a previous issue of Unworthy Thor...

Bridging the New 52 Supes with the pre-flashpoint Supes using the red/blue Superman stories of past is not just clever but also inspired. Well done Jurgens, Tomasi and co.
