    Salvador Larroca certainly earned his pay cheque with his cover, as while it does serve to spoil one of the big surprises inside the issue, it does the job that every good cover should in that it grabs the full attention of every passing X-fan. As for the interior work, the art presents well the idea that the X-Men are seriously messed up due to the influence of the Golgotha entity, as there's a wonderfully chilling moment where Emma gets ready to repair the damage to her face with a pair of scissors, and Gambit's plight in the tunnels under the mansion was nicely reflected by the art, which cleverly used shadows to sell the presence of an unseen threat. There's also a lovely little moment where a fearful Lorna works to shatter the illusion of the Golgotha which is nicely feeding off her tentative grasp on her sanity. The last page image was also a great visual to close out the issue, as it perfectly opens up the threat level of the story. Read Full Review
