    Mike Choi and Sonia Oback aren't always my favorite art team, but this issue shows off their ability to handle the action sequence. Sure, the plot was something you could predict was coming, right down to how it was done, but it was still cool to see. For some reason, I was drawn to the facial expressions on the characters' faces, and I really dug it. What was even better to see was that an arc I had basically written off as "Filler Until 500" just two issues ago took some strides forward and could finish strongly, at the very least.

    Uncanny X-Men #498 was slightly better than average. If you are a fan of action based stories then the Red Room plotline will appeal to you while the San Francisco plotline will probably bore you. And vice versa if you prefer slower paced dialogue heavy stories. Uncanny X-Men #498 is just average enough that I can't tell you to not bother buying it, but I certainly can't encourage you to run out and purchase it either. Read Full Review

    Ultimately, this issue isn't that good, but it's not that bad either. I just wish issue #500 would hurry up and get here so I can start caring about the X-Men again. Read Full Review

    So while this issue may be nothing spectacular, if you have picked up the rest of this arc you might want to get this one just to keep the story complete. I've got a good feeling Brubaker will give us a satisfying conclusion next month. Also, I'm quite interested to see what he does with the baddie that has returned. Read Full Review
