    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Sep 19, 2007

    The entire issue is filled with great moments like these and more. Great issue and I was almost tempted to make it my Book of the Week if Captain America had not been so good. Definitely give this issue a try if you are interested in great character driven books. One of the best and most consistent X-books on the market in my opinion. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Zak Edwards Sep 26, 2007

    The first thing that catches the eye is how different the art is. I had to check the credits to make sure the art team had not changed, it hasnt. The team is the exact same as before, proving how different artwork can be in the hands of a versatile team. Where the last arc was clean with a bold colour palette, it has been replaced by a rougher style with a more bland colour scheme. It still looks great. I was concerned that once the setting had changed from the crazy landscapes and characters of Belascos realm to the normal world, that Youngs art would be too crazy for any believability. These concerns have been addressed. While some things do look a little over the top, like Wolverine and Colossus. Overall the characters are animated just enough to convey how mellodramatic the characters are without crossing the line into saturday morning cartoon. Youngs panels look great. Read Full Review
