    In Immonen and Pichelli, Marvel have managed to find a fantastic creative team (and, letterer aside, an all-female at that) with a distinctive and original take on the X-Men. Compared to the rather dour and homogenous feeling most of the line has at the moment, this can't help but stand out. It might not have an event to piggyback on, but it is, undoubtedly, a worthwhile purchase for all current X-fans. Read Full Review

    All signs point to Pixie Strikes Back veering more into traditional territory down the line, but as far as this issue's concerned, it's a welcomed alternate take on the junior team with some unexpected wit from Immonen and more than a few charming qualities. Basically, if you were put off by the idea of a mini-series called Pixie Strikes Back, issue #1 is probably not going to change your tune. If you can get past that, however, it's a cool little X-curio. Read Full Review

    The cliffhanger for the issue recalls Chuck Austen's infamous demonic sojourn with Nightcrawler's origin, but the tone of the X-Men at the time had no room for the fluid symbolism and playful puns that characterize Immonen's more whimsical approach. This is an odd series (given a much more straightforward cover by Stuart Immonen to reel us in), but it seems like a fruitful way to approach the newest, most unexpected breakout X-Men star.
