We finally get an explanation for what's been happening. I mean, nothing much that I didn't already know, but I guess it's nice to have it laid out somewhat. Hopefully, this story gets more interesting with T'Challa regaining his memories. The pacing of this story is probably it's biggest issue. Something that Coates clearly struggles with as a writer. But this story is so out there and wrapped up more

Seriously thinking about giving up on this series. Very confusing, many different characters and I have know idea who is who or where they came from, or where they are going. Just hope they get out of space as soon as possible.

The typical pretentious story that many comic book fans and critics will find deep and profound, because they probably never took a philosophy class in high school or college.
Hickman can be a great writer but he can easily sacrifice character to plot or high concepts. Witness his disastrous New Avengers run which turned the Avengers/Illuminati into genocidal destroyers of worlds.

Disregard the naysayers as this issue and the next are a significant improvement over what came before.
While some critics liked Hickman’s “space comedy” I thought it was disjointed and pointless. This issue is definitely discreet but it shows Ed Brisson taking the reins and setting up future stories.

I don't see anyone in this issue trying to be funny. Emma and Pyro have humorous personality traits, but that's consistent. Everyone else is pretty much dead serious.

An absolute waste of time and money. This had been a Roberto Da Costa comic more than a New Mutants comic. Also the series has tried to be comical and meta from the beginning, but fails miserably on both counts.
The alternate Ed Brisson story with Boom Boom and Armor was equally mediocre. Inexplicable.

-The guest artists felt appropriate here. Usually they're unwelcome with this series, but I don't think anything demanded Bennett's wonderful artwork, and they helped the juxtaposition.
