    Surgeon X #2 is a fantastic read, one that, intentionally I should think, calls upon the reader to experience and learn as they go along. Kenney and Watkiss have captivated me in this future London, with it's dark, right-wing politics, and its menacing antibiotic resistant diseases. Those things are all too real even now. If you like a fast-paced psychological thriller, this is the title for you. Get it in your pull list, and thank me later. Read Full Review

    This issue's theme is the repercussions of ignorance in the face of medical emergency. Problems arise when people try to go outside the system and misdiagnose and mistreat their symptoms. Problems when people don't have the patience for the drugs to work, people who go off their meds. Problems with politics, with fascists buying and selling healthcare. Problems with doctors who are dead on the inside. The issues within Surgeon X hit quite close to home, reflections of the now that are a little too spot-on for comfort, given how thoroughly messed up Surgeon X's London actually is. This book doesn't feel like the future. It feels like our future. Let's hope we get some heroes as explicitly awesome as Rosa Scott. Read Full Review
