    The story of#13 is what you'll find intriguing, Kieron takes a break from Hitler, Stalin, Churchill and the Japanese and puts us in the shoes of some unassuming Siberian farmers. We don't know much about them and maybe it's better that way. We find out a little about their plight, they've contributed to the war effort in the only way they could but most importantly they're hungry. It really shows what earlier issues ofUber may have not touched upon, but may have been implied. Does touching the red alien crystals change both the subject mentally and physically? If you were thinking that then be prepared to have that question answered. Being one of the top issues in the series so far, this is an exceptional release as it deviates from the main plot and reminds you that behind every war there are victims. Gillen really makes you care about, not just the people who are involved in the war, but the people behind the war, the little people. Absolutely worth the pick up. Read Full Review

    The issue pledged to reveal a lot about Maria and it delivers fully on that promise. She is seen as a strong and good hearted person who will use her vast power to protect the weak. It reveals vital elements of her history and teases what is to come from her next, and I cant wait. This issue is the 3rd in as many weeks, and despite some criticisms of issue 12 the standard of storytelling seems to be keeping to its self-set high standards. Read Full Review
