So one day, Marvel decided to release a book about a young, time traveling Cyclops going into space with his space pirate father (who he thought was dead) to reconnect. I thought it was a rather goofy premise, and that it wouldn’t be for me, but I would still have appreciated the fact that Marvel was publishing it for varieties sake. Then I learned that it would be written by Greg Rucka. I bought the first issue the day it came out. For five issues, Greg Rucka took Cyclops and his father on a kind of space road trip so the two could have some personal time with one another. Things of course went bad for them, but they persevered, and overall Greg Rucka’s run was a very enjoyable and satisfying read. Now John Layman (of Chew fame) takes the rains. So, how does this first issue stack up to what’s come before?
