I picked up Deadly genesis as an afterthought today and it turned out to be pretty good. Stronger than usual dialogue, sticks to the main characters, really grabbed my attention with images like the giant stone hand holding the ship. Meanwhile, over in X-Men 177 the Decimation tie-in reads like a children's book. Is milligan the worst X writer in recent history? This book reads like something written by a junior high student. A straightforward fight with sentinels with absolutely nothing interesting occuring and perhaps the flattest dialogue in all of marveldom. I see potential in this whole house of M and decimation story arc, but with people like milligan at the helm, this turkey's going to end up half baked.
