    In just one issue Mark Russell, Richard Pace and Leonard Kirk deliver a variety of storylines and emotions that are both real and melodramatic and tinged with tragedy. I can't think of many more emotive comic books than this one that tries to evoke self-reflection in the reader than ‘Second Coming: Only Begotten Son'. One to definitely recommend to the FOX News viewer in your life.  Read Full Review

    This issue brings in a nemesis to Sunstar dubbed Cranius, who doesn't appear to have anything to do with the rest of the plot and merely serves to give the world a shakeup. He's introduced in the most clumsy flashback panels that look at first glance like they found their way into the comic by accident. There's are a number of other interesting moments beyond that, but I feel as though we've given up on maintaining a narrative.

    I enjoyed the short story in the backmatter called Roach, which was a Kafkaesque story about a teacher encountering Franz Kafka as a cockroach in his kitchen.
