There’s trapped, and then there’s trapped…like when you’re marooned in the vacuum of space and every part of your ship is crawling with parasitic aliens who want to plant the eggs of their unborn at the base of your spine. There’s screwed, and then there’s screwed…like when Bishop, the mutant cop with a nuke in his arm, is set to blow everything to hell the minute he sees his target—the girl you’ve spent 15 years trying to protect. There’s no time left. No food. No air. Rated T …$2.99

    The art, by Gabriel Guzman, is reasonably serviceable. The storytelling fundamentals work fine, but the rendering is variable -- some panels look great, others less so. It doesn't help that the locations are hard to make particularly interesting, and the Brood are so familiar and generic that even the best would struggle to turn a memorable image out of the story. The art mirrors the writing, which mirrors the plight of the title itself. There's nothing particularly bad, but it's all just a little too samey, and ultimately, unremarkable. Read Full Review

    Unfortunately, putting “Cable and Hope being chased by Bishop” in space is still “Cable and Hope being chased by Bishop”. The pattern is still the same and the only thing to change has been the details. The Brood's presence doesn't really add anymore than the cockroach people did a year ago. Also, Acanti biology seemed a lot less malicious when Storm got swallowed way back during the original Brood saga in Uncanny X-Men. Read Full Review
