Wood's strong character work and lovely writing paired with Lpez's gorgeous art that gets better with every book is an absolute recipe for success. When you add the fact that the two seem to be in superb synch you've got a near homerun on a book that less than a month ago was barely a blip on the radar. Read Full Review
David Lopez creates an excellent look that matches the more earnest storyline. He draws the many women of the book with dignity and strength instead of using those all-too-common cheesecake shots. There are two pages of conversation between Storm and Cyclops that stand out as the best of the issue. They are flawlessly paneled and use precise shots to ramp up the tension. With a strong emphasis on tone and character, Wood and Lopez serve up the best single issue this X-Men series has perhaps ever seen. Read Full Review
In many ways I feel this is an unfair grade; because I AM sooooo excited for next issue; but a good amount of that is based on hope, rather than cold hard knowledge. It seems like this could lead to Storm becoming the formidable leader she once way; it seems like grand plans are under way in regards to Sans Mutant Frontier... BUT; it's not certain. It could all amount to little in the wider X-world. The villain's scheme does seem a tad generic (very similar to Kaga's plans in the arc 'Exogenetic' in "Astonishing X-men"). BUT, as a first issue of a new direction; I will certainly be back for more. Read Full Review
