    I think James Tynion might have done more with this story given the space. It's a shame that you can feel him straining against the limits of the format at times, but what makes it to the page is a charming issue that, somewhat unevenly, brings the writer's skill for writing teens to the absolute best place for it and pairs it with a similarly talented artist. Each of the creators ride the line between youthful and sophomoric, but they come out on the right side in the end. Amazing X-Men #13 is a special little issue that leaves you feeling happy. That's something that's a little too rare these days. Read Full Review

    Amazing X-Men #13 just so happens to mark James Tynion IV's first Marvel gig. An established DC comics writer, it's wonderful that he chose to launch his Marvel writing career by showcasing a lesser-known X-Men character. Handling the character and themes with the depth they deserve, this issue will make readers want to see more of both Anole and James Tynion IV. Read Full Review
