Exiles New Vs Old: Issue four

Standard

Turns out that whole bi-monthly thing was just a flash in the pan for series new which makes me ask why they bothered with it at all.

I haven’t gone back to Exiles in many years despite my love for the title and will thus be comparing them back to back issue to issue and for those who don’t know who the Exiles are.
