It's the bottle episode of the series and a send off to one of our fellow Marauders. Definitely paying respect to the character that has to set sail on to another adventure and having fun telling tales about their many feats of adventure. It does a good job of making it feel like the end of an era and a beginning of a new one. The art is also very good at facial expressions and full of personality more

Solid issue, although it does feel a bit uneven. The strengths of this issue are definitely the dialogue and the relationships that have been built up in the series. The art is good and very good at facial expressions that adds to the comedic timing of the book. I feel like there were some missed opportunities with utilizing more of Arcade's Murderworld gimmick even though they established the exp more

What a bittersweet issue. I was not on the boat when this series started but man now I don't want off of it. This comic does characterization and building a team so well. I love the interactions and the interpersonal relationships they've established and this issue is just a great chapter in solidifying this a place in the current X-Men era. The art is also so good as it goes from having some many more

What an ending. This has done a great job of setting up Juggernaut as such a dynamic character going forward. I hope this is not the end because I quite liked this take on the character and it definitely feels like his story is far from over. The only critique I have is the art, it looks cool and pops in the actions beats but when it slows down for the character beats it tends to get a little unev more

This book is just a lot of fun. I never thought this would be at the top of my pile but here we are. The continued follow up to the fallout from X of Swords is a fun read and I find myself more invested in these rag tag characters that I thought wouldn't work together but they do. Following the fun story is the very solid art that pops and is full of a lot motion and emotion. I recommend picking t more

Great character development and set up. I love the fallout from X of Swords. This is building up a lot of great potential for future stories. The art is also very neat and expressive for the strong character driven story. Looking forward to the next issue. I recommend picking this up as a breath of fresh air for the new X-Men status quo.

Great start of a new era. I felt like this series is finally clicking to what it's going to be. I dig the new direction. Putting this in my pull list and in for the ride. The art was also a great fit for the story. I felt like this issue had a good grasp of the old familiar characters and created some interesting new ones.

Welcome back! It's like reuniting with your charming super powered friends. A great story that will send you on a good rollercoaster of emotions and a new status quo that charts a new path for the series. On top of this the art is really good at capturing the emotions as this is more character development issue. I recommend it!

Great character piece and art. This is a lot of retreading old ground and giving us great characterization for Apocalypse and Genesis. You can feel the weight of the emotional impact this will have on Apocalypse as he becomes a much more compelling character. The cautionary tale of Arrako added a nice learning from history dynamic that added a lot to the possible future of Krakoa. I'm excited for more
