    In the end, this issue does not one-up any of the previous issues of this arc, but its certainly not a bad read.

Heres hoping were not waiting too long to find out. Read Full Review

    But meanwhile the Professor has been kidnapped, by rogues who steal Korvus ship. Not sure why or what for or how close we are to Shiar space, but Brubaker has left himself plenty of time to fit in talky issues like this. Next month looks like Vulcan finally reaches Chandilar.

    Uncanny X-Men #479 was Brubaker's weakest issue so far. However, the ending was well done and should provide for a very exciting issue next month. I still have faith in Brubaker and Tan to deliver a quality product on this title. Regardless, Brubaker's Uncanny X-Men is still the best this title has been in a long time. Read Full Review
