  1. Solid. So, so solid. 5’s all around.

    I am a little worried about how they’re going to wrap this story up in only one more issue… but they’ve done amazing work so far, so…

  2. Yeah, but the flow of the story does still feel a little off for only having one more issue in this story. And I don’t mind a few of the more peripheral threads carrying over to Exile, but this was billed as a 4-issue mini without any mention of the follow-up arc until, what? Issue 2 or 3? So hopefully this story wraps up well on its own.

    • I also feel the pacing of this mini seems a bit off – but I’m confident they’ll be able to wrap up nicely in one last issue. This title was a very pleasant surprise to read (and look at). Am so glad I happened to pick it up!

    • I agree that the pace of events felt a bit like it was in fast forward this issue, but i wasn’t difficult to follow at all. The downside for me with this mini (if there is one) is that I’ve been trying to wean myself of excess books and only buy the ones I REALLY enjoy … now I’m on the hook for Exile after this mini concludes. ;P

      I haven’t read all the old school Apes books, but I like how this mini (and Boom!’s main ongoing) dives right into the continuity of the films and builds a new, compelling, engaging narrative. This is one of my favorite books right now.

  3. This issue has one of the best last pages I’ve read in a long, long time.

  4. Anyone know when this series may come out in a collected graphic novel?
