Story by Jason Aaron
Art by Jorge Molina
Cover by Ed McGuinness

Size: 0 pages
Price: 3.99

With all that talk of the troubling last pages of Batman and Uncanny Avengers, people seem to be ignoring the fact that the most disturbing (and brutal) last page in comics this week comes courtesy of the atrophied mind of Jason Aaron. Set concurrently with the end of AvX, this issue takes the reader through the paces of the Jean Grey School’s very first dance.

Aaron’s writing is as strong as always. His depiction of Xavier’s last stand is better than the version in the AvX event itself and when the tension ratchets up in the second half of the book, it RATCHETS up.

Molina’s art maintains the tradition of good artistry established by Bachalo and Bradshaw, displaying an inherit ability to draw emotions. He also manages to make Krakoa into the cutest sentient schoolground ever, so that’s a plus.

But my lord, that last page…

Story: 5 - Excellent
Art: 4 - Very Good


  1. If that last page comes to pass, I’m gonna have myself a good cry, then punch Jason Aaron in the stomach.

  2. This was the week of super crazy last pages. It’s a great trend; the return of the epic cliff hanger.

  3. That last page broke my heart, but this was still my favorite book of the week. Aaron is doing such a good job on this book that even when it makes me sad, I still love it! This is one of the best books Marvel is putting out.
