Uncanny X-Men has been frustrating lately but still offers a bit of nostalgic charm. However, as of now, there is no indication that Claremont plans on tying up any loose-ends, and he appears to be more than happy to plow forward and not look back. Read Full Review
Alan Davis is one of the main reasons why I enjoyed this issue, as he does a wonderful job on Nightcrawler's rooftop battle with X-23, and the art does manage to sell the idea that Geech could very well give the Juggernaut a run for his money in a slugfest, as the brute tears into the X-Men. The art also does a nice job of suggesting that Logan has had half his face torn off, without getting overly gruesome, as Nightcrawler's initial reaction perfectly sells the extent of the injury. There's also a nice little display of power as we see the X-Men wade into combat against the armored women, as I rather enjoyed the visual the energy blasts bending around Storm to strike Bishop, combined with the impact shots of Nightcrawler's presence. It's also nice to see the cover images are starting to reflect the story one should expect to find inside, though next issue's cover shot looks like this trend is short-lived. Read Full Review
