Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't recommend enough iPad high hopes for this omnibus but was blown away. It starts out with single issues stories that build into the larger narrative, and it delivers an epic tale by the end. I cared about all the characters, villians included, and my only complaint is the story is complete with this volume so you can't read any more of this groups adventures. John Cassidy's art work is incredible too and among his best along with astonishing X-men.
