    Emperor Vulcan isn't breaking any new ground for an X-Men book, but it does its thing well and transcends its source material. I'm not a big fan of space drama -- especially in X-titles -- but this series actually makes me not mind it so much. In fact, I sort of enjoyed it. And I think that's as good a compliment for this sort of project as anyone could hope for. Read Full Review

    Though I didnt like some of the details, the plot does make it worthwhile, and the art is good, so I cannot write this off as being bad. I have my problems with it but theyre merely personal preference so there is no reason to skip over thisI still look forward to the next issue. All Im really saying is that I wont be voting Abortion and Havok in 08. Read Full Review

    This is big-time space opera picking up from the threads dropped by Claremont and Cockrum thirty years ago, an elaboration on the vicissitudes of life within in an inter-galactic empire. Its nice to see Vulcan humbled, and the three remaining issues promise to be full epic oppositions as well. Its not clear how serious the struggle over the MKraan Crystal and its contested site is going to get, but the idea of the Shiar learning a lesson despite their arrogance definitely heightens my interest.
