Pretty good start of the book. Artwork, as expected, is simply incredible. Bendis does tell a decent story, and the writing is actually good as well, although the problem here is that the story barely moves forward. No matter that, I've got pretty high expectations for this mini.

Yes, please. As expected, Cates writes a great story and Moore's artwork really suits it. It's trippy without being too incomprehensible, it's smart without being too pretentious. Reminds me a lot of Black Bolt's solo series we had not too long ago, which I've absolutely loved. Hopefully this book can continue the momentum going.

This book isn't as special as it could be (possibly due to spending more than half of the first arc to (re)introduce the cast), but I don't know, I really enjoy reading it? There's definitely chemistry between the characters, and I really hope the next arc will be better.

I've read this issue. Then I've read it again. And you know what? I really enjoyed it.
