    All in all, this is a solid third issue which improves on the previous issues dramatically, moving the plot along in leaps and bounds, introducing all manner of new House of M concepts (Im particularly excited to see where Luke Cages gang of Sapiens fit into the overall plot) whilst keeping the central plotline chugging along happily. Whilst it would have been nice to get a glimpse of Magneto, Quicksilver or the Scarlet Witch in this new reality by now, it may be the case that Bendis is planning to pull some twists on us and as such, I wont complain too much about their absence yet. Either way, Im looking forward to seeing where this goes. Read Full Review

    Olivier Coipel turns in another fine looking issue, and the success of this issue's bits of action are due largely to his ability to convey a real sense of impact. The opening scene where Logan leaps off the Helicarrier is a wonderful looking scene, and the final panel of Logan's hands as he pulls himself up is a lovely little visual moment that nicely captures the Timex watch quality of the character. Now the big visual where Logan gets his first look at the altered reality wasn't as impressive as it could have been, but than again the art does some lovely work on the little details, like the establishing shot of Stark Tower as the sky is full of super-powered entities. The scene where Nightcrawler races after the fleeing Wolverine is also extremely well done, as is the scene where a surprise guest hero helps Logan escape. I'd also be remiss if I didn't mention that the final page image can't help but have the little fanboy inside me doing his little happy dance. Damn cool is the Read Full Review
