Issue 3 begins with a rocky start but quickly ramps up the momentum. Morrison's take on Superman has yet to let me down.

Superman and the Authority #3

By: Grant Morrison, Travel Foreman
Released: Sep 15, 2021

Superman put the Authority back together, but why? What threat is out there that only this group can contend with? The Ultra-Humanite, of course! This fearsome foe is forming a team of his own, one designed to go fist-to-fist with the Authority. It will be their baptism in battle to prove if Superman is right that regardless of who we are, there is...

I didn't feel this. I liked that Red Hood had his guns (even though the cover originally showed him with his guns too and then DC chickened out and replaced them with swords just as they did on the RHATO #50 cover) but apart from that the way he was written reverted him back to a place he hasn't been in some time. Nightwing isn't very compelling either, in fact none of the characters, other than B more

Eternals: Thanos Rises #1

By: Kieron Gillen, Dustin Weaver
Released: Sep 15, 2021

• Eternals are created, not born. They have families, but their families make no new children.
•  It's simply not what Eternals do.  
•  Some of them thought they could find a way to change that and believed it would be for the best.

This issue made me uncomfortable, and yet, I wanted more. This was a dark, eerie, grotesque, and somehow beautiful story. The art is child-like and jovial one moment and macabre the next, a perfect complement to the story being told.

Every issue of Cable that I read during the Krakoa arc surprised me with how much I liked Young-Cable. If you are a fan of the 90s and meta-jokes about pouches, you'll probably enjoy this. If you liked the growth of the character over the last few years, maybe side step this one.

I had a lot of questions about this book but they were answered largely by the interview Hickman gave regarding his departure from the X-Men line.

Well, he was my first suspect but given that they pointed fingers at him so early on, I'm thinking more at Mystique now. I actually liked the moment when he attacked Xavier. Charles was acting so cold and detached, like he didn't even try to understand his friend's pain. I was expecting to vote for the resurrection, at least for the sake of their friendship, I mean, even with that vote, he would've still been overruled by the council but no, Charles just didn't give a crap.

The beginning of this book had everything I wanted from Williams' X-Factor run. A detective story fueled by unique and interesting uses of obscure powers. Unfortunately, that's about all the praise I can muster. After three years of Krakoan X stories, we've seen nothing other than leadership, strength, and stoicism from Magneto. I don't know if this is a plot point/clue, but I don't understand the more
