    Also, I see you with your “Exiles” joke in the solicit, Marvel. Well done. Read Full Review

    A disappointing, and, at times perplexing, start to the crossover, Exiled #1 nevertheless sets up an intriguing premise for the participating titles to follow through. There is plenty of potential in here to make up for this rocky start. Here's to hoping that's what happens in the following weeks. Read Full Review

    Strong characters carry an issue held back by middling artwork and excessive ambiguity. Still, this is clearly a set-up issue, so I expect it to be all uphill from here. Read Full Review

    On art detail is Carmine Di Giandomenico, an artist I have virtually no ties with, but was impressed by. There is serious skill in this art, and it is to be noted that Giandomenico pencils both the bizarre magic worlds of Asgard and the suburban apartment of the New Mutants. Polar opposites to pencil, yet skilfully completed. I'm curious if nothing else to see more from Giandomenico. Read Full Review

    The best thing about Exiled #1 is the art. Carmine Di Giandomenico draws an insane amount of detail into every panel. I don't know if one of those three writers told him to draw a bridge made of eyeballs, but it looks awesome when he does. For a book that wasn't too fun to read, it sure was great to look at. Unfortunately, his art is buried by the story at times. Towards the end of the issue, as Asgardians, demons and mutants all face off, he is given a chance to spread out a bit and it looks great when he does. Read Full Review

    So, a slightly faltering start for the crossover, but not one which readers of either series should be put off by. It's hard to imagine newcomers sticking with it, but fans of either series will find something at once familiar and original and that's enough to mean it deserves a chance. Read Full Review

    What the HELL was THAT?! Seriously, I have NO idea what I just read! I thought this was an AvX tie-in, but after reading it, it obviously isn't... So does that mean the New Mutants won't be taking part in the AvX festivities? Because that kind of sucks... As for the story here, I've got nothin'. I think/guess Sigurd was attacked by the Desir back in the day, and he's taking his revenge on them... But yeah, this story was a) all over the place and b) not very good. This was a huge disappointment... Read Full Review
