    I love Gillen but I'm really not sure I can get past that (in my opinion) terrible artwork.

    This looks awesome.... except for Andrade's art. I honestly can't believe he gets mainstream work. He should not be doing superheroes.
    The CompleX is real.

    The premise of this book definitely makes it one of the minis I have to read, especially with the cast of characters. Kinda curious what that blip is in one of the artworks next to the wall and Knowhere in the sky.

    The art (sans faces) looks gorgeous.

    Gillan keeps talking about his love song to Marvel, and from what he says, it's like a nightmare of putting mixtures of characters in situations of unusual stress, much like Deconnecks Captain Marvel Corps looks like an idyllic setting but deep down, the place is full of worms.

    This really then, Battleworld, becomes the last reflections on a mirror of the Multiverse fading from memory in the way we used to imagine them. Like their last cry of death, or hell itself. This becomes more interesting as we learn more and more.

    I'm down for this. Generally like Gillen's work and the cast is a plus as well.

    I'm excited for anything written by Gillen, but that artwork is awful so I'm not going to pick up the book.

    SQUEAL! So excited about this comic!!! Sad Gillen's leaving (but I just started the Wicked + the Divine = EPIC!!!). This looks like a glorious final arc for him; and I LOVED S.W.O.R.D. Didn't know it was his first, THRILLED to have been there since "the beginning" of his Marvel run.

    A pity Gillen is leaving Marvel. He's probably one of my favourite writers there right now.

    This is definitely a must buy. Art may not be great, but it's far better than the guy who did S.W.O.R.D. (I couldn't help but feel like puking whenever I saw Beast).

    I like how you can see Knowhere in the skies above the Shield.
