• Has Aphra actually found a lost ancient Jedi site?
•  And if so, can she make it out with her life?
•  And if so, will she be able to get a good price for it?

I'm just happy to see the X-Men aren't playing the whoa is us card. IT'S REFRESHING! Sometimes, you do really need to go back to good team book basics. I love the mix of characters. The Nightcrawler/Storm moment was sweet. The Kitty/Prestige scene was cute. It was overall a great solid team book. Syaf is surprisingly well for this book and I can't wait what Guggenheim has in store for us!

Alright, as the title says, this is a return to basics, and so far it seems to be a solid return. Guggenheim seems to have a good handle on everyone, I like Kitty as leader, and it seems to be setting up a simple, solid plot for the next Story. However, I hate how Marvel is still trying to pull the "Inhumans are perfect angels that did nothing wrong, and the Mutants are horrible aggressors" bull. more

This comic is so good. Whenever this book comes out, which is not that often, I get excited. And I loved everything about this issue, which is really a sweet love story between the Surfer and Dawn Greenwood. To say that it was charming would be an understatement. And I absolutely loved the Mike Allred art--his 1960s style design of the planet was excellent. This is just a super fun comic to read.
