    The next issue of LXG will complete this story arc. That is an exciting though sobering fact. I cannot wait to see how this story resolves, but at the same time I regret that Alan Moore may not begin a new arc for many years - perhaps never, if you believe his recent retirement statements. For now, however, I cannot recommend strongly enough that you pick up all five chapters of LXG volume two (volume one is collected in trade paperback also). Ye shall not be disappointed. Oh my God, I'm sorry, I couldn't stop myself. Read Full Review

    These jarring scenes frame Mr. Hyde's revenge on a particularly nasty member of the group--or perhaps former member would be more accurate. The scene is presented humorously even if the intent is not humorous, but Griffin has proven to be such vermin that Hyde although his act is truly reprehensible looks like the protagonist. I doubt you'll see this scene in the upcoming film. Read Full Review

    It's always nice when a writer is able to throw readers for a loop, and I expect I'm like many readers, in that I had come to see Mr. Hyde in a heroic light, thanks to a rather revealing conversation that he had with Miss Mina in an earlier issue. Plus, the simple fact of the matter is that this issue marks the first time that he's really done something that one could consider truly monstrous in nature. However, this issue does a marvelous job of reminding the reader that Mr. Hyde is not a hero by any stretch of the imagination, and the method that he carries out his revenge upon the Invisible Man is going to stand up as one of the most unsettling moments we've received thus far. Now the alien invasion takes a bit of a back-seat to Mr. Hyde's activities, but we do get a pretty good look at the steps that are being taken to drive off the invasion, and I'm quite curious as to what exactly Dr. Moreau has created that would be able to drive off the invaders.
