    The little logic holes can be forgiven. This is a really, really great issue. Read Full Review

    The return of Kitty, the possible complications surrounding it, and the overall Nation X storyline serve as evidence that Fraction has finally found his comfort zone with this title. It's a shame that this had to happen right before the Second Coming storyline though, as crossovers can cause a book to lose its identity along the way. Hopefully Fraction now has the experience on this title necessary to keep that from happening. Read Full Review

    But back she is, and I tend to side with Scott that this is the Magneto version of the biggest apology and box of chocolates he could offer to what remains of his race at their Utopian retreat. I'm glad Scott sees it that way, too. Read Full Review

    There are so many great things about this issue when you look at the big picture that I would love to give this a "Buy It" verdict. Unfortunately, there were an overabundance of things that didn't work at all, including the completely unnecessary backup story.

    Where the issue ends is exactly where you think it will, although with a twist or two to keep things interesting, and that's fine. The journey there has some nice moments, but becomes a little too focused on making that ending happen no matter what and is hampered by art that doesn't match up to the writing, particularly at the end of the issue.

    In the end, it gets a C-. If I was a teacher and this book was one of my students, I would not fail him or her. The grade is passing, but just barely and there’s plenty of red marker in the margins instructing them to do better next time. Read Full Review
