  1. Bendis and Bachalo?

    I’m in for at least the first dozen.

    • From the start too, it’s been Bendis & Bachalo for 5 then Bendis & Frazer Irving for 5. I love the worlds apart artists rotating on the same title, Bachalo sets a tone for the ongoing sub plots while Irving comes in on the arcs that require his palette to change then atmospheric channel.

    • I’ve only seen Irving in 3 only which is issues number #5-7 and it looks like Bachalo is back on from #8-13 and possibly 14.
      This series is great. I was never a fan of Bendis but i really do appreciate this work more so than I do Hickman’s (one of my favor writers of all time) Avengers.

  2. Really been enjoying this.

  3. I know that everybody bitches and moans that nothing ever happens plot wise in Bendis books and it’s all just character moments and what have you but goddamn this is some good comics right here.

      Here here. I’m okay just hanging out with these characters for as long as Bendis wants to write it.

    • Bendis is hit and miss with me, but I’m loving what he is doing with these two x-men titles. Good stuff here.

  4. Love the story; still not 100% on the art.

  5. Still can’t stand the art, not caring for the story. Way to kill my Uncanny X-Men run, Marvel…

    • Haha, because this singlehandedly breaks decades of uninterrupted brilliance? You do recall that Chuck Austen wrote this title for nearly three years, right?

      That said, I was a bit disappointed with this issue. I really hope there is an explanation or some repercussions for the way Dazzler treated Fabio’s family. Granted, Fabio’s father didn’t need to pull a gun, but why did Dazzler feel she had the right to just barge into their house uninvited in the first place?

      And while I usually like Bendis’ dialogue, it felt really disjointed in this issue.

      Regardless, I like the way he’s finally giving the Cuckoos some development, and these new mutants are still interesting to me, so I’m still on board.

    • Greg Land kept you going strong.

  6. This was very good. The new mutant Hijack seems dope and I liked the tai chi scene at the beginning.
