Unwritten #8

When does an innocent belief in fiction cross the line into delusion? That’s what the latest “Unwritten” asks, but the answer is undercut by the book’s larger narrative somewhat.

X-Men: Legacy #209

Carey continues his unique take on the X-Men, aimed at mainstay fans of the franchise. Tan and Eaton handle the art nicely as a disorientated Xavier wakes up in the hands of the Acolytes. X-Men: Legacy is off to a slow but intriguing start.
