Man, this book has wandered so far off course. If you've a bottomless hunger for Star Wars homages, this might satisfy you, but Star Wars homages in X-Men date back to when Claremont watched A New Hope. The idea is tired, the execution is indifferent, and even Phil Noto's art disappoints. An off day for a book that hasn't had an on one in a long while.

RICTOR HATES PARTIES.
Even the nice ones. And with Captain Britain's return to a changed world, this one is looking to be not so nice. Excalibur's Earth-shattering HELLFIRE GALA issue will change Krakoan diplomacy forever.

It's party time, but somebody's got to work it. And when invited guests (and a few crashers) prove to be planted antagonistic agents, X-FORCE will need to get their hands dirty and keep this all under wraps...before anyone catches wind!

The way Dugan literally did nothing with Storm, Bishop and Iceman for 17 issues is upsetting. Thank God Storm is free. Emma Frost and Kate Pryde are the most dull and obnoxious duo right now.

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.
