    Salvador Larroca turns in some lovely work on this issue, as there's some very sharp looking visuals in this issue. The shot where the X-Men have discovered a Golgotha entity beneath Calvary gets the issue off to an exciting start, and there's a lovely shot of the Blackbirds returning to the X-Mansion with the defeated Golgotha entity in tow. The action sequence later in the issue is also quite impressive as there's a cute panel where Wolverine's claws trump those of his attacker, and there's a great impact shot of Polaris delivering an attack, as we see the attack from her vantage point. There's also a nice wince inducing moment involving Logan's rather crude response to the mouthy leader of the Crazy Gang. The final page of this issue has a wonderfully ominous quality about it. I also loved the issue's cover image, as it's a lovely action shot, and I rather enjoyed the visual effects that are used to hint at Iceman's powers. Read Full Review
