It's a good week for comics. Any week with both #Hawkguy and Saga are good weeks.

Ex Nihilo has been sneaky and set a little plan in motion that effectively will change the Earth forever. I know we hear that phrase in comics a lot but it's his actual plan. Physically change the earth and turn it into a conscious entity. Obviously our gang have to try and stop this evil deed but as I write this they don't really know about it yet.
Technically this is still the same story arc as issue 1. Eight issues later and it still feels like it's only getting started. To say that Hickman plays the long game would be a gross understatement. The guy is a genius at comic story telling. Despite the story still being teased out, this series has felt like there are a million and one things going on at once.
Hickman is not half-assing this, guys. He's using his whole ass, and possibly bits of yours too. Check your ass, folks, Hickman may have taken it.
