After the build-up from the funeral issue this is a massive disappointment. It didn't push the story along enough and what we're given in terms of reunions isn't enough to warrant a full issue of Kitty meandering around Krakoa vaguely plotting revenge with Emma. Really hoping Duggan can right this ship after X Of Swords.

Did the writer get the memo that she's suppose to writte a comic book and not some bad fanfic? The text try to hard to be fun, but it feels like some really bad tumblr/twitter talk, like some old man trying to keep it with the kids, it's extra cringe, try harder Williams.

Leah Willians is just not good. She writes every single character as if they were 15-year-old twitter/tumblr users full on snark and banter all the time. It's exhausting. It's like she writes for the sole purpose of fishing for reactions of a small but vocal twitter fanbase.

No words for this one. While Marauders has been an average book so far, this issue drops the ball magnificently.

That Emma panel was terribly handled. I'm sure Gerry Duggan had the best intentions; however, it comes off very cringey and tone-deaf. In the hands of a straight, white author, what is supposed to be sexual empowerment can often be interpreted as objectification.

A SHOW OF POWER!
The Marauders set their sights on the power-dampening technology that seems to have made its way into far too many hands - most notably, the Russian Army. The Hellfire's wrath with be swift and harsh.
