    Yes, satisfying drama usually indicates that there was a lack of action in the issue, which is true of Issue #69. However, next issue looks like a humdinger, with a battle between the X-Men and the Brotherhood of Mutants, including the first action for Mr. Boggs (I hope he shows me something!). Honestly, Kirkman is doing a fine job following Brian K. Vaughan on this series, which is a hard act to follow considering the awesome conclusion to Vaughans run. But, we are talking about the writer of Invincible and The Walking Dead, two of my favorite titles on the stands right now, and it looks like he is bringing the same level of quality to Ultimate X-Men. Oh, and by the way, Mr. Kirkman: nice connection in this issue to Ultimate Wolverine vs. Hulk! Read Full Review

    The writing is solid and I like the pacing, but, overall, Kirkman's dialogue is less than impressive. For some reason, Ultimate X-Men just isn't a particularly interesting or entertaining read. It seems to be lacking any sizzle or emotion. I think that the writing in general has a very formulaic approach. Another problem with this issue is that not much at all happened. It felt like a wasted issue. Read Full Review
