    The only misstep is Reed Richards face, Molina can never get the nose to look right. Some feminists might take issue with Lee Forrester’s generous chest and how it’s the center of almost every scene she’s in. Personally I didn’t mind, but I did notice. With all the new turnaround happening in the X-Men world, I doubt solid and exciting but smaller stories like these will find a home amongst the bigger themes. That’s a shame, because these are the types stories that make comic books fun to read. Read Full Review

    Here's the thing. I really didn't like the story at first. However, when I actually read all four issues back to back (which I did) it actually really grew on me. I loved the whole multi integrated teams working together to accomplish different goals. Read Full Review

    She explains why she stays, but the reason is weak sauce, IMO. Read Full Review

    This X-Men series focuses on telling isolated, continuity-light tales that feature the X-Men. The quality of each story arc has varied: the vampire business was a definite low, while Chris Yost's time-bending and mind-bending story about the secret Evolutionaries was excellent. Unfortunately, this one joins the neck-biters. Read Full Review

    Um, so the whole idea of this storyline was that the X-Men wanted to rescue Lee and bring her home due to a SOS beacon she sent out that was found by the FF... Right? So how does this storyline end? Lee tells the X-Men, “Whoops, I actually want to stay here! Sorry for the inconvenience!” and the X-Men and FF head home... What a waste this storyline was. I really can't think of many positive things to say about this one actually... I guess I enjoyed the interaction between Doom and Magneto? Meh. Here's hoping Victor Gischler gets back to the strong stories he was telling during the early parts of this series, because I really didn't enjoy this one at all. Read Full Review
