This week, we dive into X of Swords: Creation #1 giving our take on the book as well as digging into what it all means. This is a light-spoiler analysis, but we do reveal a few key details!
Before we dig into that, we recap the biggest news of the week! Shocking everyone, Raised by Wolves gets a comic, does this mean more HBO Max/DC crossovers?
