    ‘Sabretooth And The Exiles' is arguably the best book being published in the X-Line as it fully explores not just what Krakoa means overall but tackles so many realistic pressing issues through the lens of the X-Men metaphor. It's a powerful series that resonates because it doesn't shy away from the darkness of the world, shining a light right in the face of that darkness.

    Sabretooth And The Exiles #2 is excellent. It keeps up a lively tone, with the right mixture of fun, excitement, and danger. The cliffhanger ending is wonderful. LaValle, Kirk, Beredo, and Petit are doing terrific work.

    A strong development of the stellar foundation laid last issue, the second issue of Sabretooth & the Exiles puts in the work to better realize the dangers at hand. Furthermore, it develops the bond between Oya and Nekra's rising star, which is a rare relationship even within the X-Men franchise. While unable to provide good character moments to the whole cast, the insights we do get carry the development of the whole team forward.

    By showing Creed's intelligence, LaValle emphasizes that indulging Sabretooth's wild side is a choice. Rather than being bound by any law or code of honor, Sabretooth follows only his impulses and desires. Knowing that is a conscious decision makes it all the more interesting. It also creates tension when he's cast as the unlikely leader of this band of Krakoan Exiles while in a weakened state, which means relying more on his knowledge to keep himself and the rest of the group alive than on his ferocity.

    Major Spoilers

    Sabretooth and the Exiles #2 appeals to me on a meta-level. I want to know how this comic fits into the larger X-Men world. At the end of this comic, I expect Sabretooth to still be evil. Still, there may be some interesting character development within the other characters. With that in mind, Sabretooth and the Exiles #2 is a 3.5 out of 5 stars.

    Weird Science Marvel Comics

    Sabretooth & the Exiles #2 replays the same plot from issue #1 but rearranges the placement of the characters for a serviceable entry in the series. The art is fantastic, and a peek into the nature of Orphan-Maker’s true power is intriguing, but this series isn’t bringing anything new to the Krakoan Era.
