  1. I’m definitely loving this as well as All New X-Men, but surely aren’t both series kinda mirroring each other at the moment?

    • Yeah, it’s basically running as two sides of the same story post AvX. Cliffhangers go between books since Bendis is writing both.

  2. Anyone know the over under on who is jumping ship?

    • My money is on young Jean Grey. Which is a bummer because I was kinda hoping we would get to see some interaction with her and Rachel.

  3. I like this story. I love seeing Cyclops post AvX.

  4. These covers are AWESOME! Magik certainly cuts the mustard with that big-ass Bachalo sword. Very excited for this.

  5. So the resolution of the ALL-NEW cliffhanger was kind of off-hand and not very exciting.

  6. Man Bendis writes a crappy Australian, she talks just like an American except when she says “crikey”, Australians never say crikey

  7. Really liked the story in this issue and this continues to be one of my favorite books. My issue (my opinion) is that the art is not really for me. Some panels look great, some panels look haphazard and the characters appear to me as though I have dropped acid.

    Other than that, I’m a big fan. And if you disagree or think I’m missing something, I am interested in hearing your opinion.

  8. I was like, “Damn I love this this Art! Looking at these characters makes me feel like I dropped acid!”
    Different strokes for different folks, I guess.

    I love that his work is so unique. Also, look at the character’s expressions. He is great with expression and emotion. Also, I just read an interview, where he says that the 1st 4 are rushed. http://chrisbachalo.net/gallery-illustrations.html

  9. Weakest issue of this series so far but with the upcoming arc about Magik with Irving on art should be interesting

    • Totally agree! Irving was the selling point for me on this title (kinda strange huh?). Confusing story this time around. Felt like a filler issue.

  10. Yeah, if All New X-Men had have come out before this, that would have been great.

  11. Why is All New so good, but this is so bad?

  12. This didn’t do much but bore me. Felt like I’ve been there, done that.

  13. How come the stepford cuckoos were let down by meeting Jean Grey? They should have remembered her from Morrison’s New Xmen.
