If it wasn’t for last issue’s cliffhanger, I wouldn’t have bothered staying along for the ride for Marvel’s summer event book. But then it was Jonathan Hickman’s turn to start the second act and it blew me away. It makes sense given Hickman’s knack for being able to handle super-powered teams with big ideas as he does so well in Fantastic Four. And a change in art to Olivier Coipel brought a breath of fresh air to the story, making this book one to pick up after it looked like it was going to fall flat.

Image’s current big-selling book came very close to the pick. Saga #4 took a diverging path and split half of the issue for Marco and Alana’s story and gave the other half to The Will. The latter was the most intriguing – and by that, I mean where the heck does Brian K. Vaughan come up with Sextillion? In any event, great insight into The Will and it shows us that not all characters are what we think it will or may end up being. Fiona Staples is killing it with the art – probably the best facial expressions I’ve seen from anybody today.

Don’t get sold out! Buy advance tickets to The Dark Knight Rises.
