    Although it is heartbreaking to know that this will be the 2nd to the last issue, the penultimate chapter of the series definitely delivered an EPIC showdown that felt like you were on a rollercoaster ride. Christina Strain, Almicar Pinna, and Felipe Sobreiro undoubtedly put all their love and efforts for this book and it shows! They know what the fans want and they are making sure that they deliver. Before the curtain closes, the creative team are making sure that Generation X will end with a bang next month (and with lots of fireworks.) A definite must-read for every fan of the original series!

    Strain, Pinna, and Sobreiro have all trimmed the fat and hit their stride together. Gen-X has matured and evolved into the unique coming-of-age mutant book it was destined to be. Read Full Review

    The standout character is Quentin, as always. This issue was a lot tenser than I was expecting and I'm so glad they finally addressed Quentin's Phoenix power again (and made his lack of Phoenix power in Jean Grey make sense). The ending made me really excited. Reversing Jubilee's vampirism is definitely a good move.

    Jubilee fetches Quentin back to the Institute just in time for a serious Monet showdown. There are quality relationship upgrades and plenty of attention for all the core cast members before a mother of an ending delivers a huge status quo change. Christina Strain's script is excellent. Amilcar Pinna's art delivers great details and characters. This issue portrays a lot of action, though, and at multiple points Mr. Pinna's work looks too static. Also, the twist ending is a little too ambiguous. I had to seek out internet help to understand what happened on the final page - and I don't think the blame for the confusion falls entirely on me.
