B.P.R.D: The Devil You Know #1 - picking up where Hell On Earth finished (the inside cover states this is #148 of the series), this issue is very much about getting the gang back together. Howards, Liz, and Ashley Strode being chief among them; and, I suspect Abe will be along sooner rather than later. Laurence Campbell is back on art, and it is magnificent. However, Scott Allie picks up the writing batton from John Arcudi, and the change is immediately noticeable. I don’t like his style. It doesn’t flow as well as his predecessors (or indeed, Chris Roberson’s). Excited to have this book back, and hopeful for the future.
X-Men: Blue #4, 5, 6 - continues to impress, with the series delving into the lingering ramifications of Secret Wars, acknowledging the existence of the Ultimate Universe and the differences between mutants from each. I still don’t get why Jean’s suddenly calling the shots now, when Scott Summers is standing right there (I mean, he’s literally right there, are you guys blind?), but it is a fun dynamic. And the way #6 ends brought a smile to my face, setting up some fun future stories.
