    Now that Matt Fraction has stopped trying to juggle too many storylines at once, Uncanny X-Men has turned into quite a satisfying read. If he keeps this up there won't be much for fans to complain about, except for Greg Land's artwork that is. Read Full Review

    On the plus side, though? I liked Matt Fraction's script for "Uncanny X-Men" #520 a great deal. As the cracks in Utopia begin to widen, Fraction has carefully set up a teetering platform for Cyclops to stand on, and it's one that's wobbling faster by the minute. I'm appreciating that I'm not sure where Fraction is going with this story. A power struggle leading them scattered? A triumphant return to glory? Something completely different? Who knows? I'm enjoying seeing everything fall into place, though, and it's turning out to be a lot of fun. I just wish the Dodsons were illustrating every issue. Still, even with art that's becoming problematic, there's enough in the script to make me want to keep reading, so good for that. One out of two ain't bad, right? Read Full Review
