Wow. This was absolutely fantastic. I haven't really been a fan of many of the other Soliel books that Marvel has opted to publish, but this one was amazing. The story was well written and I couldn't stop turning the pages! Not to mention the absolutely beautiful artwork.

Okay, Marvel. Let's have the next one!
