Review of Cyclops #2, by fredscribbles. 

Rucka and Dauterman are reestablishing the man this boy will become. His journey may be very different than it first was, but they’re bringing the core of the character to the forefront in a respectful and empathic way.

All in all, Cyclops works because it’s great to watch teenage Scott grow up with more character development and internal insight than we got the first time around in comics.

Review of Cyclops #1, by fredscribbles. 

I’ve never really been a fan of Cyclops. The character has either been under-used or mishandled for decades, but Greg Rucka and Russell Dauterman have changed that. Cyclops #1 may just be the start of Slim’s adventures in space with his dad, but it’s a truly excellent one — Bill & Ted allusions notwithstanding.
