    Now that the first arc is truly complete, the "Messiah Complex" epilogue is over and the series worryingly provides a perfect jumping-off point. The ongoing mystery of the baby's identity is clearly not going to be definitively resolved for a while, and there aren't many other plot threads for readers to focus on, unless you're waiting for the Bishop/Cable rematch. If that's the only ongoing thread, it's not necessarily going to keep people around for long. Read Full Review

    But by the end, I inexplicably find myself with a lot of goodwill towards the series because of the developments here. It's setting up threads for later use, which the book badly needed. Cable's mission statement of Nate on the run with the baby can only sustain so many issues before the status quo needs a shake-up, and while we're not quite there yet, Swierczynski seems to be wisely planning for that eventuality. For the first time since issue #1, I'm cautiously optimistic about the book and I'd call issue #6 a noticeable improvement despite its flaws. Read Full Review
