Ever the didact, Athena IX specializes in cruel, calculating instruction, manipulating her siblings and supplicants with the intellectual upper hand. But this is the Chairwoman's future, not hers, and some lessons must be taught more harshly than others.

    Athena IX #1 is a fabulous look into the IXth Generation character, with the one-shot being a refreshing alternative to what we're usually used to. It's also full of some of the most intense action you could dream for, having a poetic twist to proceedings. Read Full Review

    This is a sort of sequel to the Aphrodite IX series, but it very much different"which is actually really good (not that the first series was bad, but change in comic books just makes me giddy). Some stuff is the same, but not a lot. This series is meant to be the future of the evolution, progression from the last series. I have no idea where this is going from issue #1, and I'm glad I don't, because for once, the suspense feels kind of nice. Athena herself is a badass, going from ordering an execution to grabbing a weapon herself to dying and coming back to life, and crushing someone else's head with her bare hands"all in the first issue. Needless to say, I'm already addicted. Read Full Review
