    X-23 #17

    X-23 continues to be one of the best-written comics Marvel puts out, with storylines that respect continuity without getting too bogged down in "events." It's a comic that can be easily picked up by the casual reader and enjoyed separately from the Marvel Universe as a whole, while still being very much a part of it.

    Frankenstein, Agent of S.H.A.D.E. #3

    This is not the Frankenstein's monster from Shelley's beautiful horror title nor is it so tied to the Boris Karloff films from the '30s that you would be unable to enjoy it. Frankenstein: Agent of S.H.A.D.E. is a whole different kind of monster!

    Magneto: Not a Hero #1

    Magneto: Not a Hero #1 isn't a bad comic. It's just not a particularly great one. It has a strong beginning and end, but the middle is a bit muddled and slowly paced.

    X-Men Legacy #258

    It's a convoluted and over-packed storyline that, at the end, feels a bit like too many threads to connect into a cohesive whole. It's difficult to follow at times, and while at its core it has the makings of what could've have been an enjoyable X-Men in Space adventure, it gets bogged down in the layers of escalating threat.
