    Against all odds, we get a pretty good conclusion to what has been an absolutely horrible arc. Read Full Review

    Superia has injured Mockingbird, and we've been waiting three issues to see if she survives. They've been flashback issues illustrated by Howard Chaykin, so the wait has been somewhat ameliorated, but I was getting a little tired of all the hand-wringing. Read Full Review
