Mark Brooks artwork is great in a series like this, his style balances an equal ability to both convey emotion and depict action very well, which this series has both of. I especially liked his two page spread of Jean Grey relating some memories of Nightcrawler and Dazzler. The blending of images and lack of panels, with the present on one side and the past on the other works wonderfully. The page is very busy with plenty going on without becoming overwhelming and thankfully Coleites dialogue is sparse to allow for Brooks to express visually what is happening. His Rogue struck me as different from his usual style, she became much softer in this issue, which was fitting as the issue has a heavy focus on the fragile character. So while the story is frustrating, Brooks pencils are still nice to engage with. Read Full Review
