    The X-Women from the JGS will never be as exciting as those from the New Xavier School but they do hold their own as enjoyable characters. I really liked Psylocke in action, the exclusion of Storm for once and a little bit of spunk from Rachel. And, the scene with Roxy and Jubilee was sweet in its own way and again will (hopefully) be followed up with more explanation in the near future. Read Full Review

    Unfortunately, this issue does take one significant step back from the previous chapter in terms of visuals. Terry Dodson only illustrates about half the issue, if even that. The rest is handled by Barry Kitson. Kitson's art is clean and presentable, but lacks some of the dynamic spark of Dodson's work. It's disappointing to see a fill-in artist appear so soon into this six-issue arc, and it doesn't bode well for the future. Read Full Review

    In all, I like that the story is exploring new territory and going in a fresh direction and that some lesser known characters get to shine. And the art while great, is just a tiny bit inconsistent. Read Full Review

    The birth of the Sisterhood gives the X-Men a formed threat, but will Wood give readers the action scenes to boot? With Battle of the Atom taking precedence, things for the X-Men title have been a little shaky, but there's potential here to produce something. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Dec 21, 2013

    Somehow, beyond all reason, Terry Dodson's work was even worse in this issue. It's only the second issue of X-Men he's been on, why does the comic need half a dozen different inkers and a supporting artist? Terry Dodson can't even get through two issues? Read Full Review
