Great kick off issue with some really solid art. Charles Soule shows us some scenes that we were never able to witness in the films. I always enjoy seeing lots of Palpatine in these comics and this may be the most attention he gets. Vader's trial to truly become a Sith lord looks like it could be one of the best Star Wars comics so far.

Back to Basics. We need this in the X-Men. Seeing a school, students, teenager problems, people trying to kill them. Not much happened, maybe no the greatest story, yet it is in the right place.

Let's face it the art is really wonky. Pinna and Sobreiro made Jubes and Kitty look ancient while the others looked like they never aged a day. I really do like the introduction of all the characters. I only got confused with one minor character. I really thought she was Jean Grey for a second. Strain is writing a fun, action packed issue and I really do hope she keeps it up!.
