    Unfortunately, the art side of this issue isn't quite as strong as the writing. Ron Garney's work feels washed out and unpolished throughout. I'm not sure if this is due to the inking or the coloring, but it lessens the books quality as a whole. The art is serviceable, but could have been so much crisper.The seesaw that is Uncanny X-Men during Avengers Vs. X-Men continues to rock, with this title climbing back up to excellence after falling a little with the conclusion of Mister Sinister's story last issue. With two issues of the title remaining, it remains to be seen if this level can be maintained as we head into the final month of the crossover. Read Full Review

    From an execution standpoint, this may be even better than the main Avengers vs. X-Men comic. Read Full Review

    For me, Uncanny X-Men #18 is only nine pages long. The rest of it is some wheel-spinning malarkey about Scott Summers being bitchy and showing us that, during the big fight in Avengers vs. X-Men #11, Scott and Emma Frost were also having a lovely dinner with each other on the astral plane wherein they were eating steak glazed with human blood. Whatever, yadda yadda, Phoenix Corruptus ad nauseum. It's all rendered very well by artist Ron Garney, but I've had my fill of Cyclops. Read Full Review

    Ron Garney does a fair job at rendering the events of the story, but at times his linework becomes too erratic and saps the sharpness from his drawings. There are a few standout moments, namely Colossus's Juggernaut rage-out and Scott's last two pages, but a lot of the smaller moments do not look as good as the big ones. While this issue does have a tidbit of interesting content, it ultimately becomes just another victim to the nature of event crossovers: you can hint at something cool that happens, but only the main event title gets to show it.
