    By taking the time to catch readers up to speed, Hickman manages to right this ship and turn it back into one of Marvel's most riveting ongoing series. There's still a ridiculously number of plot threads and characters buzzing around these pages, but at least we now have a better idea of a few of them. Let's hope he stays diligent about laying things out clearly from here on out, and that Caselli continues to churn out such beautiful, expressive work. Read Full Review

    Despite the many positives of this issue, its hard to view it as a singular cohesive whole when its so informed by what came before and the scenes included lack the drama and entertainment value they possess for someone whos read every issue. The focus of this series shifts so easily that which characters are shown seems random until the eventual payoff, which may not be for some time. Its a great series to read, but not necessarily one issue at a time. Read Full Review
