    Abnett and Lanning craft a terrific tale that has been building for quite some time. Even with Realm of Kings in the offing, I'm more interested in the fallout of this issue than anything else going on in the cosmic section of Marvel.

    A great wrap-up to a great storyline. I really don’t have any complaints and I feel like this book keeps getting better and better. I appreciate the extensive use of Marvel history and continuity that these guys have been throwing into this book every month as well as the sense of humor and fun. And a talking dog with a Russian accent never hurts. I feel like I’m reading a kooky comic version of an old Republic serial every month. Good stuff. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Oct 29, 2009

    This should be one of the biggest and most important issues of the series, but, unfortunately, the unfocused dialogue, rushed plotting, and simply horrendous art completely derails the importance of the moment. You'll very little of the many, many, many things that make this one of the best comics on the stands in this issue, which is a damn shame as I hate to criticize what is normally one of my favorite titles.
