    Stuart Immonen turns in another strong effort on this issue, and while I wish Justin Ponsor's colours were a little bolder, the art has a wonderful energy to it, as well as a sense of clarity that does a great job when it comes to the delivery of the big twist. I mean the impact of the panel where we learn the truth about Longshot is really quite impressive, and the expression of Jean as she pulls herself out of this flashback is a great visual indication of how shocking this surprise is. There's also some nice work on the scene where our characters make their way through Spiral's memories, as it was a clever use of colour. The energy of the final confrontation between Longshot and Mojo was also nicely done, as the sense of power that Mojo is able to bring to bear against Longshot is well presented. My only quibble with the art on this issue is that Colossus's arrival wasn't as powerful as it could've been. Read Full Review
