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.

They could have scrapped all four issues into one and still would be boring. Spoilers ahead............

The plot for Spaceknight was so disappointing, and the Order of X out there kidnapping mutant's children will have to wait til the crossover is over, so what's the point? Noto's art still good, but even him can't save this book.
