Ahhh I love the smell of a lecture in the morning. We get it Saladin Ahmed, you hate the US and apparently all European countries.
As if that wasn't boring enough, the stylistic choice of using monochromatic tones for 2 issues feels like I'm being cheated out of some proper art and inking. I'm finding it really hard to justify the cover price with this series... Which is a shame since I love more

Surprise appearances can make a comic book series more interesting, but it won't work for long. It's a decent issue, but had very little progression for it's size, failing to justify cover price.

This series continues to keep me on the edge of my seat from the uneasiness that it cases me to feel something horrible is about to happen, but you just don't know when.
Seems like we're getting a big clue with this book and it's definitely a nightmare scenario for Scott Free and Big Barda.

I honestly don't get what's was the idea with this. Second time we go back to the future, and this time without Cap even being there. Feels like they ran out of ideas and this is all just filler material waiting for Coates' run to start. Which is probably the case.

Weird issue, especially considering it's the last one of the series before it "reboots". Spider-Man felt more like he was written as Deadpool and they changed at the last minute, and his whole cameo seemed like a running gag that overstayed its welcome just a few pages in.

A weak ending overall, which is surprising after the superb ending of Cates' run on Thanos, so I expected somethin more

I'm liking these series, and it helps that Jean is one of my all time favorite characters, but I could use a bit more subtlety on references to current world politics and a faster pace. For a monthly series taking so long to setup the villain and the main conflict might kill the hype people had for this, myself included, or force people to trade wait and risk killing the series.
