    I'm astonished that Marvel, after the past couple of years of ill-judged event stories and crossovers, and the current squandering of their main event, have managed to produce something so well balanced as this. Using the war as a backdrop for strong characterisation and turbulent plotting has resulted in a solid miniseries with modest ambitions but considerable creative success. If all crossovers and events were so well done, I wouldn't get a sinking feeling every time one is announced. Read Full Review

    In The End: Well, like Shrek and his friends, Nova and crew are up chocolate creek without a Popsicle stick, which is fantastic. Yeah that sounds weird, but as a reader this series brings up the "cant wait for the next issue" feeling that I like so much. Giffen has taken a large cast of characters and made me care about them. The action is intense, the dialogue is spot on and the art is amazing. Theres a lot going on, but Giffen never loses the reader or at least he hasnt lost me. The great thing is that this is only issue #3, and were already at the hopeless stage, which makes me wonder what else is going to happen, and if things could get any worse. Not to sound sadistic, but I kind of hope they do. It will make the eventual (Im assuming) victory that much more satisfying. Read Full Review

    The issue was straightforward, obvious, and cluttered with dialogue, small spaces, and dull color tones causing this reviewer to leave the narrative with disappointment. Giffen and his team simply laid out the expected and predictable, other than one minor plot angle which was barely touched on, and the issue simply fell flatter than an open soda can.
