The art doesn't blow me away, but it's not bad by any means. The story it's self is a nice one and done setting up a handful of potential plots and sub plots, always good for a first issue. It's funny, it's got pretty good pacing, and some a solid foundation of characterization for major players. A fun issue, and I will be back. (Also in case you didn't read the solicit 2099 isn't the setting, as more

I didn't enjoy this issue as much as I usually enjoy this series. It's not bad, but it's missing some of the charm with all the set up. Still whats set up here promises to be fun.

The lockjaw story was fun, but short and mostly fluff. Deathlok was a solid story, and the art gave great mood. I hadn't read Young Avengers in a while so I'm really put off by Prodigy especially, but overall it wasn't too bad when it wasn't trying too hard.

I really would have liked to seen more of 48 years later, but we learn absolutely nothing about it. The story does move forward though, not really clear what it's motion forward actually means as it's all cryptic future talk. But it's early in the story line, nothing wrong with unanswered questions.

This is a good series, and there is a lot of potential. It's a little slow as Soule puts the pieces on the board, but it looks to be building to a lot of political machinations alongside some standard super hero brawls. Unfortunately all of the delays makes the slow burn feel much slower. Hopefully once Stegman comes aboard we'll be on a faster release schedule. I love Madureira's art, but not eno more
