Not as interesting and fresh as the last issue, but still perfectly enjoyable read. I liked the detective and mystery elements the most and the introduction of Abyss was great and suspenseful, thanks to the great art. Honestly the art is a big selling point for me. The stuff with Luther, while very curious is only going to get more interesting with the story progressing in my opinion.

Though it seemed obvious Cyclops was Captain Krakoa (CK), I am interested in the back story. With characters like the Red Guardian, Captain Britain, Captain America, it makes sense Krakoa would want a poster boy. CK doesn't seem like a lasting character, but I've been wrong before.

Really love the Arakko conflict. Mutantdom found an uninhabitable planet, terraformed it, and by in large more

Duggan and Larraz dropped some pretty huge revelations this issue with a couple of dueling narratives, one of which has really pinned Scott into a corner. He's always had a pretty strong moral compass as the leader of the X-Men and I love that the promise of Krakoa is really pushing that to it's limit. The argument he held with the Quiet Council was particularly fascinating, positioning Scott as t more

I appreciate someone who understands the story threats being weaved and is able to look past just what's on the surface and seeing the narrative being told. Good review.

^Seconded. I read the first two issues of this run and they're solid and I'm glad the series still is at #6. Great review, Loafy.

Wow. Not surprising that yet again, Hickman nails the ending of his run but also keeps it open for the other writers to expand and explore new concepts with the groundwork he established. His goal was simple: fix the X-Men. And I believe he has done that. Hopefully post-Hickman is still compelling but I just have to applaud him for making the X family of books a talking point again.
