    3.5/5While the overall plot didn't blow my mind, I really like the roster of characters so I'm going to continue with this series. Becky Barnes owns my heart!

    Insanely entertaining new series. Javier Rodriguez is quickly becoming one of my favorite artists.

    The new volume of the Exiles feels like it was written in the '80s or '90s, because it's VERY verbose, full of lots of unnecessary dialogue and often teeny, teeny panels.That isn't helped by the first arc, which is a five-issue battle against the Time Eater. Oh, there are plenty of nice set pieces within, and the team that Ahmed gathers together is a lot of fun (even if it does take five issues for Lil' Wolvie to be more than comic relief), but between the decompressed plotting and the equally d The new volume of the Exiles feels like it was written in the '80s or '90s, because it's VERY verbose, full of lots of unnecessary dialogue and often teeny, teeny panels.That isn't helped by the first arc, which is a five-issue battle against the Time Eater.

The sixth issue is much better on both fronts, and hopefully marks a turn around. It also promises some meaningful links to the original Exiles comics. That might be why Marvel decided to include it here, despite the annoying fact that it's the first issue of a new arc that simply to-be-continueds.

Called by the Unseen and aided by the Tallus, Blink must cross the multiverse to assemble allies both new and familiar as they desperately search for a way to defeat the Time Eater before all of existence as we know it has been digested!The original Judd Winick/Tony Bedard Exiles run are some of my favourite X-Men comics (we don’t talk about Chris Claremont Exiles), so when I heard that they were coming back, I was very excited to say the least. This volume of the series however is operated out of the Avengers office rather than the X office, so it’s not surprising that it feels a little different. That said, different isn’t necessarily bad, and this series is off to a very strong start.Exiles lives and dies on two things – the characters on the team, and the worlds that they visit. These change at the drop of a hat, but get either of them wrong for too long and that’s when it all starts to fall apart. Luckily, writer Saladin Ahmed is no slouch at either of these. He starts, of course, with Blink – you can’t have Exiles without Blink, after all, and she’s the heart and soul of the book. Then in rapid succession, she’s joined by a post apocalyptic Ms. Marvel, known as Khan, an incarnation of Valkyrie that looks suspiciously like she’s from Thor: Ragnarok, a cartoon version of Wolverine named Wolvie, and a morally ambiguous version of Iron Lad. Each character brings a different perspective to the team, and allows them to look at their surroundings with very different eyes. Like any good Exiles bunch, they’re varied and different and you’re not exactly sure how they’re going to fit together at first, but by the end of these five issues, you’ll be rooting for them to succeed and devastated when one of them falls in battle (another unavoidable part of any Exiles series, unfortunately). The addition of the Unseen as a team leader/director keeps him relevant, and also makes for some amusing developments later in the arc when his younger self ends up joining the team temporarily.The worlds that the Exiles whizz through are as varied and eclectic as the team itself – not content with just their homeworlds, the characters also visit an alternate World War II with Peggy Carter as Captain America, among others. There’s a sense of urgency that few books manage to capture since the Time Eater is literally at their heels for most of the story, and while it’d be nice to spend more time in each world like the previous series, the snapshots of each that we get show how inventive the creative team are, and how malleable the Marvel Universe is since it bends into each new locale easily and recognizably.Of course, none of this would be half as impressive without the artistic talents of Javier Rodriguez. His off-kilter panel layouts, double and single page spreads, and page transitions give Exiles a truly unpredictable feel, and he manages to litter the background with little details that make both the characters and the worlds they visit really come to life (check out Wolvie in the back of nearly any page and he’s doing something adorable, I guarantee).Resurrecting the Exiles was always going to be a gamble, especially with a new office and a relatively new writer at the helm, but it pays off massively. Ahmed crafts a compelling story with a wonderfully diverse group of characters while Rodriguez realises them spectacularly with his trademark pencils. The Exiles may be all over the place, but this series is anything but.

    Skvělý lineární příběh se sympatickými postavami (s výjimkou Wolvieho). Ahmed jede.

    I've read this as single issues so can't comment on additional content in the trade. I really enjoyed this. I like how they've used other characters to define why the exiles have come together.

    I really like this series. I'm thinking I should go back and read the first Exiles run.

    Plot was so-so, but can't wait to spend more time with these characters!
