The April release of Oblivion sees Tom Cruise step back into the sci-fi genre but with a very different approach to his previous roles in the likes of Minority Report and War of the Worlds – as the high action set-pieces have given way to a much steadier paced film.

Issue #5 of the so far impressive Lou Scannon arrived on my doorstep a few weeks back and somehow it seemed to slip through my “next-to-read” pile as I drowned in an influx of new issues.

With a great opening start in those first 3-issues (reviewed here) we see Dan Slott continue to mess with Spidey’s life, head AND relationships…….and I’m loving it
