This is it! The final chapter to Ed Brubaker's Uncanny X-Men epic! Who lives? Who dies? And who gets left in outer space?! It's the action packed finale that sets the X-Men and the Shi'Ar Empire into whole new directions!
Uncanny X-Men #486 was an action packed issue. Brubaker pulled out all the stops in this issue to deliver a very entertaining story. I wish we had a bit more closure to this 12 issue story arc, but I'll just have to trust Brubaker that he has something grand in store for us. I still view Uncanny X-Men to be far inferior to the other titles that Brubaker writes. However, Brubaker's Uncanny X-Men is still better than any other version of the X-Men that we have gotten in a very long time. Read Full Review
Hill: I just have a couple of closing thoughts. I really enjoyed that Brubaker sustained the entire twelve-issue arc in such an organized fashion, as planned, even with the less interesting Vulcan-only issues. He really was the weak link, though his betrayals and excessive power at least made him an effective adversary. I'd be happy to have Tan stay on the book; though I liked Milligan/Larrocca, I thought Brubaker/Tan/Henry a far stronger team. Read Full Review
