"The Extremists" Part 1 of 5
The X-Men are back from space! Well, half of them, anyway. The team is shattered, broken and separated. The group that has returned to earth is finding it much worse than how they left it-- especially underground. Attacks in the Morlock Tunnels immediately grab the X-Men's attention. What do these attacks have to do with the future of the mutant race? Maybe special guest-star Storm can get to the bottom of all this!

    Uncanny X-Men #487 was a slightly better than average read. Of course, it is typical Brubaker to begin a new story arc in an understated fashion and really take his time constructing the story. I still don't think that Brubaker has been able to generate the type of magic on Uncanny X-Men that he is able to create over on the other titles that he writes. Read Full Review

    Larroca has always had an excellent command of anatomy, and his painted style is more successful than most. Its interesting to see him dealing with the kind of clear, straightforward script Brubaker writes (compared to the loopy oddities of his stint working with Peter Milligan recently), but he still seems to gloss over significant details at times. For example, Caliban is supposed to be terribly hurt halfway through the story, and transformed thereafter. But all I see is that he got skinnier. Larroca usually dresses up weak scripts; paired here with a solid talent like Brubaker, I expect to see their communication skills improve over time. Read Full Review
