This issue continues writer Chris Yost’s “First to Last” storyline that started in Giant Sized X-Men #1. This is a very satisfying issue that expands on the first book’s well crafted setup. Yost continues to tell his story in segments taking place during different time periods. He weaves the plot together almost seamlessly, spending time showing how the Evolutionaries threat dates back to the team’s early days as well as shedding light on their current motivations.

Yost juggles a lot of characters around in this issue, most used very well. He’s also done a nice job creating a genuine and ominous┬áthreat that could potentially have serious repercussions. I’m really intrigued with this story and I’m anxious to see what’s next.

Medina and Talajic continue to provide some solid art for this story. I love the slick, polished look to the characters and the action sequences are very well done. Medina and Talajic’s art compliment each other well and both are a good fit for this book.

This is a fun story with a lot of potential. The art is crisp and appealing and Yost clearly has bigger things in mind carrying the story further. This is a fun series and an easy one to reccomend.

Story: 5 - Excellent
Art: 4 - Very Good


  1. great review, i agree wholeheartedly.  thanks for reading my review.

  2. Would this and the giant size X-men be a good jump on point for new x-men readers?

    I only know the movies and have seen the cartoons many years ago and loved that. I’m just not really sure which x-book to pick up, since there is simply too much choice…
