Page 45 Review by Stephen

"Happy families. Now there's a contradiction in terms."
"Don't be cynical. It takes practice. Doesn't suit you, princess."
"I really wish you'd knock it off with the "princess"."
"I'm trying to be nice."
"Don't be. It takes practice. Doesn't suit you, princess."

In which one of the freshest, funniest and most inventive series - in any genre of comics in recent years - comes to a perfect close.

Oh, you have wailed and wailed, for you wanted so much more and who can bloody well blame you?

But Team Phonogram, as they like to call themselves, will shortly be bringing you THE WICKED AND THE DIVINE.

Meanwhile Al Ewing and Lee Garbett's LOKI, AGENT OF ASGARD continues Loki's journey with delicious mischief and Marvel have just reissued Kieron Gillen and Dougie Braithwaite's JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY which is full of the young tyke's tall tales and manipulative gameplay.

I wrote about YOUNG AVENGERS VOL 1 and YOUNG AVENGERS VOL 2 at considerable length, so please check out those reviews. I've little more to add than that McKelvie delivers more of his eye-frazzling innovation and spectacle and that all of the carefully selected guest artists will have you squealing. Emma Vieceli's spotlight on Wiccan and Hulking is particularly sexy, stylish and as glittery as all get-out without being for one second saccharine or effete.

Now, if you're anything like me you're going to get your money's worth by starting again at the beginning to see just how cleverly Gillen - and thereby some of his protagonists - have played you.

If you're anything like Gillen, then you are probably going to want breakfast first.
