One question though... Spoiler: location used in HIVE #2 Shouldn't the Mutara Nebula no longer exist? I got the impression the matter that made up the nebula was turned into the Genesis Planet, which of course then exploded. So I would have thought that the Mutara Nebula was more or less an asteroid field now. But that's minor nit picking. Spoiler: Major event in HIVE #2 I'm more disappointed that the destruction of Andoria Prime wasn't given more of a dramatic build-up. That's a pretty big thing to do to only have it as three small panels at the bottom of a page. I didn't really feel the emotion to it that I should have with such a major event. But I totally agree with DarKush, the new reveals about the Voldranall made them more interesting to me. All in all I found issue 2 to still be a little below average but more enjoyable than issue 1, so I feel this series is improving and moving in the right direction.
