Not when she discovers Gyrich’s plan for fixing S.W.O.R.D. is to rid Earth of ALL ALIENS! Brought to you by Kieron Gillen (DARK AVENGERS: ARES), Steven Sanders (Five Fists of Science) and topped off with covers by ASTONISHING X-MEN artist JOHN CASSADAY!

  1. Ha!  I know it was suggested several times by this community that this might have done better with the addition of "Xmen" to the title.  Way to call it iFanbase!

    This was great and I’m glad more people will get the chance to enjoy it. Here’s hopeing that enough do to bring it back. (At least as a mini)

  2. Whenever my Barnes and Noble has it, I definitely want to give it a go. Gillen has won me over a bit so let’s see if I can get past Pink Panther Beast. 

  3. Honestly, I thought the story was average and the art was weak.

    Dude, I work at a Barnes & Noble and I still get my TPBs on Instocktrades/DCBS. The discount w/ them is usually better and there’s no tax.
