TRENDING NOW: It takes two (or three, four, more!) to tango: it seems like there are more and more series coming out with multiple writers on one issue. Uncanny X-Men, the new Marvel miniseries from the McElroy family, Avengers: No Surrender and it’s sequel No Road Home, the unannounced Scott Snyder/Charles Soule book - do these books provide a good break from the monotony of one writer for too long, or do they suffer from too many cooks in the kitchen? The Signal Scott Snyder, Tony Patrick
