Review: Decorum #1

Decorum #1

It’s difficult to describe Decorum #1. It’s a world-building debut that shows the evolution of writer Jonathan Hickman. Hickman is known for his deeply thought-out worlds. But, over recent years he’s shifted to something so much more.

Hickman’s shift was most recently present in his relaunch of Marvel’s X-Men line of comics. There we got an entire new language and pages devoted to additional material to explain things. This wasn’t filler material where the reader is expected to look for hints and clues or throwaway material. Instead, readers have been treated to in-depth articles describing socio-political situations or deep dives into a particular aspect. Hickman continues that in Decorum #1.

The comic has an almost roleplaying game sourcebook quality about it. It definitely pays homage to the old-school comic sourcebooks which are rarer to come by nowadays. In between chapters the creative team dives into specific aspects of the world Hickman is building. Planets are discussed or some of the history presented. It creates a richer experience that takes this debut beyond the typical comic experience.

Decorum #1

That’s helped by Mike Huddleston‘s art. It’s unlike anything I’ve seen with a style that’s so fresh and engaging it’s almost distracting. It helps build upon the alien nature of it all while at the same time delivering familiarity. Beautiful is an understatement from the work which is enhanced by Rus Wooton‘s lettering. The art alone is a reason to purchase this comic. It’s difficult to describe but will keep you lingering on every page.

Decorum #1 is a jaw-dropping debut. It’s a must get for all comic fans as it challenges everything about comics from the narrative to the art, and Sasha E. Head‘s fantastic design work. Part story, part worldbuilding, Decorum #1 is a unique experience. It’s also a near-perfect debut.

Decorum #1 Sells Out and Goes Back to Print

The highly anticipated Decorum #1 by bestselling, comics titan Jonathan Hickman and artist Mike Huddleston has sold out at the distributor level, same day as release. It is being rushed back to print in order to keep up with overwhelming demand.

Decorum blends the high impact, event level storytelling of Hickman’s recent re-envisioning of X-Men with the sprawling, addictive worldbuilding of the recently concluded East of West. In the world of Decorum, there are many assassins in the known universe. Decorum is the story of the most well-mannered one.

Decorum #1, second printing (Diamond Code JAN209139) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, April 8.

X of Swords, the Next X-Men Event Announced at C2E2

Mutant MassacreAge of ApocalypseMessiah Complex. Some of the most iconic X-Men stories ever told have been realized as large-scale crossovers. This longstanding tradition continues this summer with X of Swords.

Just announced to an enthusiastic crowd of X-Men fans at the X-Men Panel at C2E2, X of Swords will be a 15-part crossover tying into your favorite X-Titles and led by Head of X Jonathan Hickman. In this sprawling saga, the new mutant nation of Krakoa faces their biggest challenge yet. Threatened by powerful forces from the unknown, ten mutants will rise up to defend their home. Arming themselves with legendary blades, both new and familiar ones from Marvel history, mutantkind will finally meet its mystical destiny. Impacting the entire X-Men franchise and setting the stage for the future of mutantkind, X of Swords will be a modern X-Men epic that both longtime and new X-Men fans dare not miss.

Last year, Jonathan Hickman reshaped the world of the X-Men with the top-selling House of X and Powers of X. Since then, the X-Men titles have become of the talk of the industry, each telling exhilarating stories set in this exciting new era. Don’t miss the next chapter in Hickman’s grand vision for Marvel’s mutants when X of Swords kicks off in July!
