Users who pulled this comic:


  1. Wasn’t gonna check this out, but Ricochet was in the preview. Now I have no choice. Plus it’s Sean Chen, and that’s never bad.

  2. Thinking of checking this out, based on Gage’s strong writing on Angel and Faith.

  3. I finally read the first three issues of this series last week. Really good!

  4. I said I would come back after Fear Itself was over and am really glad this book is getting a chance to shine for a bit without having to get wrapped in an event

  5. This move to California might be a great move, I mean we are getting the Runaways in March !

  6. Real excited about the new direction. Made Chicken Salad out of the Fear Itself tie in.

  7. I can’t believe it is issue 21 already. I’m getting old.

  8. This is still one of the best five comics out right now. Christos Gage has been writing his butt off lately.

  9. Really didn’t like last issue because of Fear Itself…lets hope they can maintain the awesome and keep the event tie in stuff to a minimum.

  10. Liked that cliffhanger! This book is always so much fun.

  11. I love this book. I can’t wait to see where this is going.

  12. I loved this issue, Im going to have to read it again to try and understand the last page though…. If someone knows something i don’t i’d love to hear it.

    I only got into AA thru fear itself but this is staying on my pull list.

    Was also Wicked to see Spider-girl in the background, i hope she can finally get used a bit. Excited for X-23 joining as well.

    • You should go check out the back issues. This was my favorite series to come out of Siege and was the only high-quality story with that damn Fear Itself banner on it. It hurts to see Veil (who is still my favorite of the students) but the chemistry between the teachers and students is fantastic.

      This is the comic that Jason Aaron wants Wolverine & the X-Men to be like.

  13. I was pleasantly surprised by this one! I thought it was tense and touching and had some genuinely funny moments. The Grey’s Anatomy analogy killed me. It looks like we are finally one our way to shaking off the poostink that was Fear Itself.

  14. Great as always.

  15. Been thinking about jumping on since the .1 issue and finally took the plunge this month. Now, I’m kicking myself for not jumping on sooner. Lots of fun and just $2.99 to boot.

  16. This was great! No that F.I. is done, we can get back to the good stuff. Man i’m loving the heck out of this series which still surprises me. Goes to show that a good creative team can take B and C list characters and do some really cool things with them. Looking forward to next time…

  17. This is one of the best books marvel’s putting out and it just keeps getting better. I loved everything about this from the choice of new students, to the original students wigging at cap and the others. The last few pages were fantastic to, I didn’t see that coming at all but it’s just really clever and can lead the story in so many cool ways.
