Well, it’s rather wonderful to see Synch get the spotlight for a change. A character we’ve seen so rarely since the heyday of Generation X that more recent readers would be forgiven for thinking he’s new. Put him alongside Darwin and Laura Kinney and you have a recipe for a very happy reader. Well, if the reader in question is me.
Add to that the return of the Children of the Vault from Mike Carey and Chris Bachalo’s run…and a whole lot of very intriguing stuff regarding them, and you’ve got yourself a damn fine comic book.
There’s also stuff here that seems to be alluding to The Maker, from Hickman’s Ultimates stuff…and given that Professor X currently looks almost exactly like him…then…well…it could all be a big red herring or it could be pointing to…something.
Time will tell.
