East of West #25: One of the superficially quiet issues. Hickman is very good at telling an incredibly dense and eventful story in a way that feels leisurely while being in fact quite fast. I don't think he has ever quite pulled it off with his Marvel work; as much as I love what he does with Doom and the FF, the problem is that the Marvel Universe just doesn't make a lot of sense, and the more cosmic you go, the less sense it makes (same for DC, and then some). But East of West is a world he designed instead of being forced to make sense of like Doom had to, it's just an easier one to work with.
Karnak #3: The usual Ellis mixture of curious facts, cynical musings, and conceptually and/or visually inventive violence; I could've said the same about the Bond one above, or his Moon Knight. I'm not complaining; it's a combination I enjoy.
