  1. I’m starving for continuity-heavy, backs against the wall X-Men stuff these days, but I’ve been enjoying this for what it is.  It’s not going to push the ongoing "X-Men story", but it’s been a fun little arc with some solid characterizations. 

  2. When the hell is Nate Grey coming in?? I’m getting impatient.

  3. I hope this issue delivers the way the covers suggests.  The last one seemed like filler, or perhaps it was the calm before the storm

  4. I’m sort of sick of this arc, I hope it concludes this issue.

  5. @ comicBOOKchris. I agree last time we saw Nate Grey he was in that Dark X-Men limited series. When is Havok, Polaris, and Rachel Summers arriving from space? I feel that sometimes the writers forget about other X-characters that are out there. For example is Warpath. We haven’t seen him since Necrosha.

  6. XManRyan: Well Nate was in the preview images for the series, and not to mention the Curse Of Mutants Saga free issue. So that and the fact that he’s The Greatest Marvel Character is why I’m waiting on his appearance.

  7. This new title has been uninspired. It has had a few good moments, a lot so so moments, and several serious clunkers. Mostly I don’t think Gischler writes interesting vampires. And they would have to be very interesting to overcome the vampire oversaturation of the moment. I think he needs to move on to his next big idea. If it is in 3-d, I am outta here.

  8. I got pretty pumped when Vampire Wolverine faced off with the X-team.

    Am I missing a lot by not reading other tie-ins?  The stuff with Namor and his people seemed like it was set up/fleshed out elswhere.

  9. assuming the next arc does not have other books covering related material, I would think Gischler will shine more with the next story.

  10. srh1son, I only read this.  I don’t feel like I’ve missed anything.  I’m tired of tie-ins.  That being said, I’ve been pretty bored with this series… until this issue.  Gischler won me over.  I’m looking forward to the conclusion and where the book goes from here.

  11. I feel like this book needs its own identity.  I really don’t need two series based on Cyclops & Emma.

  12. I enjoyed this issue, it was certainly a lot better than the last Uncanny X-men. 

  13. I just jumped on board this x-men so i am really enjoying this story arc, can’t wait and see what the writer has in stored for us after this story arc ends.

  14. Lame cop-out of a twist involving nano-bots or whatever suppressing his healing factor, art has grown on me a bit though.

  15. I really had fun with this issue. Wish Bobby had made more if an impact, loved the holy water bit.

  16. The battle scene with the vampires was fun, but the Wolverine “twist” was mega-predictable. I am also starting to have some trouble connecting the various machinations of Cyclops with WHY he did them. Why exactly did he put Logan through that? It seems increasingly obvious he didn’t need to resurrect Dracula, either, as they devastated the main vampire army with like ten of the 100 mutants at his disposal. I try to sit back and just let it happen, maybe Scott’s plan is deeper or maybe he is going by the seat of his pants and making a lot of mistakes. But the less sense it makes, the less satisfying the story as a whole…
