In the last half of this series Al Ewing managed to make the Inhumans interesting for the first time since Realm of Kings and Abnett and Lanning. The key to this is change, nothing is more boring than a royal family with petrified personalities, therefore a fatally ill Medusa falling in love with Gorgon was perfect. Javier Rodriguez art was beautiful. Not always a fan of Ewing or the Inhumans, but more

Jon Comics reviewed Doctor Strange #383 Jan 14, 2018
7.0

Cates is a talented writer, but the beginning of the run is a little off. The whole run of Jason Aaron was built on a powerless Dr. Strange, so it’s boring to continue that even if this story is about addressing that issue. Too much Asgard, too much Loki, too much Sentry (yikes!). Walta’s art is good, but his Doctor Strange looks bizarre.

Unbelieveably mediocre. This book has been terrible from the start, but the “villains” Kologoth and Scythe bring it to a new low. A paper thin story that would have been bad for a Hannah Barbera cartoon of the 70s. This book is hopeless. I hear it will be rebooted soon. Can’t wait.

Cullenn Bunn finally bounces back with a great X Men Blue storyline. After hus great, underrated Uncanny X Men run, Bunn gets the chance to play to his strengths with a complex multi issue run which makes good us me of the X Men history to move the story forward in an interesting way. The best time displaced X Men story since Bendis left. Hope it doesn’t fall apart at the conclusion.

Don't know why this arc got such a critical bad rap. It has been really exciting and featured great art by Reis and Watanabe.
I still can't stand Lobo, but Orlando created an interesting villain and gave the story an epic scope.
The book sucked before this arc, esoecially in the art department but this was a return to form.
