    Yet Another story in a dystopian future trying to present something different or is it really all that different. If you love Bishop, and you love that dark X-men future, it is worth picking up. At the very least, as a reprieve from the Krakoan era. Read Full Review

    Well, I can't ignore for a second that it's extremely retro. In the art, obviously, but the characterization and the script structure are also throwbacks to the early 90s.

    A quick comparison with actual comics of the time shows that this is a nicely-refined evolution of that old style, though. I won't rate the storytelling above average, but I won't penalize it for its retro-ness.

    The content--the story being told--nudges my rating up a bit. It's fairly interesting. And I appreciate that it seems built for a reader like me, ignorant as I am of Bishop's early years.
