This is the best issue of this series in a while. I think Cypher is a really good character, and his situation is very compelling.

Pretty unremarkable, but there's nothing to hate about this, and I like these characters enough that it made the story interesting.

I liked this a lot. Couple hiccups with the writing, but this is definitely the most engaging X-of-Swords story so far, and Mr. Sinister is just a great character.

I don't like this series very much BUT Mr. Terrific is absolutely one of the best characters in a comic I'm reading right now.

Strange Adventures #6

By: Tom King, Mitch Gerads

How determined is Mr. Terrific to find the truth? The answer becomes more challenging as the whole world starts to turn against him. Adam Strange is a hero who can save the Earth from alien invasion, and who is Mr. Terrific to say otherwise? The extent of the denial only makes the man more suspicious.

Namely, the business of destroying absolutely everything that made that second lease on life worth living…

So much better than the first X-of-Swords. With a better artist, this could've been a really outstanding issue. As it stands, I still really like it, it's just unfortunate that the one aspect is holding it back, and it's not even Leah Williams' fault, who really outdid herself this time, in my humble opinion.

Alright. More of this. I'd say this is about on the same level as the first issue. I don't know. It's like Chew, but... boring. I feel like one of the problems is that John Layman's sense of humor revolves around building on top of previously established jokes. And by making this a prequel, most of the jokes that could be built upon already have. And the new story doesn't seem to have those same l more
