    Frankly, I found Harnetts criticism of the issue to be extremely harsh and even a little sexist. On the other hand, (how can I say this without sounding sexist), Claremonts female characters have set such a high standard in the minds of X-men readers that any realistic women characters will appear to be stupid and weak. Just like real world men will appear inferior compared to superhero men. In short, I loved this book! I had to go back and count the pages to make sure this was a regular-sized comic. The art was so detailed and there was so much to read that it felt longer. That could be taken two ways, but I say this was a hefty, rich, full-bodied comic well worth 3 dollars. Its Chuck Austens finest work on the title. I cant wait for the next issue. If this gets back to Mr. Austen, tell him this: Thank you. I love your work. Read Full Review

In the end this is a perfectly serviceable issue that is no better or worse that most of the drama filled angst that we saw in these pages for the better part of the 1990s. I don't care much for the poorly defined character developments that Chuck Austen has brought to this book, but I can see that he's trying to create a story that will engage the reader's interest. I think I'm just going to have to accept the fact that he's going for a different audience, and that a large degree of my resentment is that I'm finding so little enjoyment from a book that is littered with characters who I've long co Read Full Review
