    Great pacing, interesting characters, vivid colors courtesy of Jean-Francois Beaulieu, and some of the best cliffhangers in the industry guarantee that this comic is a great read every month. Its amazing how good it can be without featuring prominent characters like Cyclops and Wolverine on a monthly basis. More people should be giving it a try. Read Full Review

    Skottie Young continues to show just how wild that ride can be. His chaotic, animated style works very well with this story in Hell. He does, however, seem to have a knack for drawing some characters well and others simply looking silly. For example, Young can draw a mean Dust, some of the panels stick out a bit style-wise, but they are incredible. Unfortunately, Nehzno just looks like a silly caricature. I still applaud Young for keeping such a fresh style in mainstream comics. Read Full Review
