If you thought the Matthew Rosenberg X-Men run had potential that it didn't fulfill, THIS is your issue. Fantastic, heartbreaking stuff, with one of the most impactful endings I've read in a superhero comic in years. Larraz, of course, continues to bring beautiful art and Gracia delivers on the colors.

Crowded said gay rights!
This issue had less comedy than the last couple, but the action scene was KILLER. Stein and Brandt are masters of fight choreography. Also, Vita in a tank top.

Crowded #9

By: Christopher Sebela, Ro Stein
Released: Sep 4, 2019

Charlie and Vita's hopes of ending the Reapr campaign rest on a potentially insane techbro billionaire hiding in the penthouse of Las Vegas' most secure casino. And if their plan to break in succeeds, they'll still have to bust out of a desperate town of people one bad bet away from killing them both.

I'm not normally one for "everything you thought you knew was wrong!"-type retcons. It's not that there's anything inherently wrong with them, it's just that they're hard to pull off without just coming off as the writer smelling their own farts and being unfair to prior creative teams. With this issue, Hickman shows so much respect-- for past creators AND the reader-- that it's impossible not to more

House of X #1 was a stunning, awe-inspiring debut that showed how committed Jonathan Hickman is to matching the feelings of the characters inhabiting his brave new X-world with those of the readers. In House of X, there's this palpable sense of inspiration, of hope renewed-- you truly feel like the mutants are moving forward after so any years of stagnation, ready to walk hand-in-hand into the fut more

I hopped on board the Hickman train midway through his Avengers run and I haven't gotten off since, so I'm very pleased to say HoX #1 lives up to the hype and then some. Hickman seamlessly blends traditional superhero storytelling with a sci-fi political thriller, with plenty of help from Pepe Larraz and Marte Gracia's gorgeous art, Clayton Cowles' subtle lettering, and some truly excellent graphi more

Immortal Hulk

HORROR HAS A NAME.
You'd never notice the man. He doesn't like to be noticed. He's quiet. Calm. Never complains. If someone were to walk up and shoot him in the head... all he'd do is die.
Until night falls. And someone else gets up again.
The man's name is Banner.
The horror is THE IMMORTAL HULK.
