“Meanwhile…” Storm, Beast, Colossus and Agent Brand have all been implanted with Broodlings and it’s only a matter of time until they are full-on Brood themselves. Only Kitty and Lockheed are left, but is there anything they can even do to help their teammates? This story comes to its amazing conclusion.

    Juan Bobillo's artwork has not been the easiest for me to get behind, but his work in this issue is terrific. The composition of his images is a true highlight of this book where he uses a plethora of circular images to effectively capture the space station setting. It's clear from the perspectives and character blocking that Bobillo has thought long and hard about giving the images as much depth and three-dimensionality as possible. Several of his illustrations are quite arresting, and several frames of the book could be used as artwork on their own without sacrificing the information that they are meant to convey. The only problem that I have with Bobillo's style in this issue is that his bold images are occasionally so arresting and interesting that it breaks up the flow of the story. Read Full Review
