    For those that have stuck with his occasionally confusing story, Mike Carey's story comes full circle and the bread crumbs he has dropped throughout the last few issues lead to a great payoff . As usual for this series, this issue features two different art styles, one for the present situation (strong, but marred by some silly facial expressions) and one for scenes taking place in Xavier's mind (fantastically surreal and incredibly impressive). This is another strong issue and I expect great things to come out of the big reveal on the last page. Read Full Review

    Again, it needs to be said that Legacy is easily the most consistent X-Men title on the stands, especially now that Astonishing has wrapped up. At the very least, the book is the most unique X-Men title in recent memory. Carey has really stepped up his game here, providing what may just be his best superhero work to date. Read Full Review

    Scot Eaton does great job in these scenes, particularly with facial expressions. Xavier's misplaced rage towards Cyclops' presumed mismanagement of the X-Men is sobering. You can honestly understand why Xavier feels so shameful of his actions just from the artwork. Although the Sinister-body-snatcher-machine is a little trite, given that this would the second time Marvel has gotten close to emulating Battlestar Galatica, it will certainly make the rest of this series interesting, especially with regards to Charles Xavier.
