            Reading “Second Coming” has been one of the most visceral comic experiences I have had in a very long time.  There is a lot of writing talent on the “X” books right now, and they seem to have collaborated beautifully on this story.  I hope they can keep the excitement coming.  Lots of fans said the first few installments were a lot like “Cable.”  I’m not sure, since I haven’t been reading that title, but in this story, the chase scenes have been executed in an exciting, cinematic fashion.  Who wouldn’t want to see that kind of a chase scene in an “X-Men” film?  Each chapter has added some interesting twists to the story.  The “X-Man” who dies in this story is not killed gratuitously, but for a dramatic reason.  The death helps to illustrate how desperate the X-Men are, and how bad ass Bastian is as a villain.  As the gazillionth iteration of the Sentinels, Bastian appears to be a worthy adversary for the X-Men — the kind of villain the team does not encounter very often.  Being made of metal though, I wonder how he will stand up to Magneto.

            The art in this comic is great, with Choi doing his usual sexy and detailed work.  Adi Granov contributes a powerful cover with the White Queen embracing Hope (Although neither looks very hopeful.) and both of them smeared with blood.

Story: 5 - Excellent
Art: 5 - Excellent


  1. Bastion is sentinel based, so sadly he will probably hold up to Magneto well.
