The issue was inspired from a good place, but quite frankly it was a little boring, and not very well executed. if you are interested in American history you'll probably already be familiar with the content - and as a non-American this issue was a little alienating. I think my biggest problem was that the small time spent at each scene - along with the amount of historical context they tried to fi more

Gets a 2 point deduction from my actual score just for saying something is better than The Cure. (PS. Nothing is better than The Cure)
Gets a 0.5 point bonus for punching Hitler.

The dialogue goes from incredibly bad to outright cringe-y at times, with its only decent point being the art by Quinones.

A dark, twisted and strangely lovable character: Karnak is at the end of it's six issue run and it was really a masterpiece, albeit very left-field from the typical kind of Marvel book. Gritty and visually stunning artwork captures the book very well, and Warren Ellis certainly knows how to write a character, although his style may not be to everyone's taste. This book was nihilistic, questioning more

Superman is still one of DC's strongest post-Rebirth titles, but really this (short) arc was mediocre at best and there's no need to gloss over that for the benefit of the doubt in the series' overall success. I've still got faith in the creative team, but this arc really seemed a bit unnecessary and out of place with the general thematic aims of this post-Rebirth Superman run. Hopefully with this more

This was a solid conclusion to a really fresh, well fleshed out, first arc. There are still lots of questions to be answered and what started as a fairly simple concept is now already a well-fleshed out series with interesting characters.

Death of X is basically what if you mix Weekend at Bernies with V for Vendetta, but with mutants instead.

Also, if you were expecting Lemire to explain what terrible thing Cyclops did... well...it doesn't pay off. So Lemire kept telling us that Cyclops did this completely unforgivable thing in Extraordinary X-men and it turns out all he did was to make -one- terrigen cloud innocuous more

Stunning art wasn't enough to make up for a mediocre-at-best story. Percy's game has gotten pretty weak since the first story arc ended, and this story while a bit of fun was really pretty shallow and predictable. There wasn't really much character development here and whilst there was some preachy dialogue it did little to add to any overarching sense of intrigue which could mark the book out as more
