    Uncanny X-Men, as a series, is winding down once again. We're still going to be treated to some great Marvel Comics stories from Gillen, just not Marvel Comics' X-Men stories. Savor them while you still can. Read Full Review

    "You didn't try to understand me," the Phoenix tells him. "You only tried to master me." Sinister was never going to approach it any other way. The question now is whether or not he'll survive to try to learn from that mistake, or if he's been purged entirely. This is comics, so we have a pretty good inkling of which way that will lean.

    If you haven't been reading Uncanny X-Men don't get this issue. The next issue starts up a new arc and I think you'd be better off starting there. Read Full Review

    "Uncanny X-Men" hasn't been a book that has worked for me as much as I would have liked over the last year, considering how much I like both the characters and Kieron Gillen as a writer, but reading this issue makes me realize that my issue has mostly been with the art. Not much can be done about that, but it sure is nice to enjoy this book with a great creative team that can deliver on all fronts. Read Full Review

    So another arc comes to a close, and with only three issues of the series left, it's safe to say that Gillen has a lot of work to do to wrap up all of the plotlines he has created, as well as having some repercussions from the crossover event to sort out as well. It looks as though Cyclops and Emma Frost will be getting the spotlight for the next few issues, but here's hoping they're as enjoyable as this last little arc has been. Read Full Review
